Lithuanian digital subsidies start

The Lithuanian incumbent telco TEO LT will soon put forward proposals that will allow its pay-TV subscribers to benefit from state subsidies for reception equipment.

The news was given by Nerijus Ivanauskas, the company’s chief marketing officer, quoted by VZ, and comes just as subsidies for DTT receivers have come into effect.

Starting at the end of April and up until November 20, needy citizens will be able to claim refunds of LTL100 (€28.9) from the state for DTT reception equipment they purchase.
