National Council for TV and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine (NTVCU) has issued a warning to a company that currently holds an operator’s licence for the country’s fourth DTT multiplex MX-4.
According to AKTR and Kommersant Ukraine, the company in question – UDTVN – has yet to launch the multiplex and after further warnings could lose its licence.
UDTVN has already paid over UAH10 million (€907,830) for the licence and around UAH2 million for distributing signals.
Should it lose its licence, it could instead be awarded to a company named Zeonbud, which currently holds licences for the multiplexes MX-1, MX-2, MX-3 and MX-5.
Both MX-4 and MX-6 are national multiplexes reserved for DVB-T and DVB-H services.
The licence for MX-6 is held Ether, which like UDTVN has yet to start operations.
