Ukraine’s National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council has approved the tender conditions for the award of a cultural and education channel on the country’s fifth multiplex (MX-5), which uses the DVB-T2 standard.
One of the conditions is a requirement for the channel to be broadcast 100% in Ukrainian.
Applications will be accepted from July 25, with the deadline set at 17.00 on August 23. Results of the contest will be announced on October 24.
As previously reported in Broadband TV News, the slot on the multiplex was formerly occupied by a channel named BTB, which had its licence withdrawn by the regulator.
