The Polish Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) has reached a compromise with the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT), thereby putting the country’s transition to digital broadcasting back on track.
Last week the KRRiT announced a roadmap for the transition that envisaged the launch of the first DTT multiplex this September and ASO.
However, the UKE subsequently refused to sign off the plan. Now, according to Wirtualne Media, the two parties appear to have buried their differences, with the KRRiT having accepted a number of the UKE’s proposals.
They include the addition of two more locations – Wisla and Rzeszów – to the four that will have DTT from September; flexibility as to the use of the third multiplex; and surrender of frequencies vacated by the transition to digital broadcasting to the UKE.
In the latter, the frequencies could be allocated for DVB-H services.
