ORS, the transmission company that serves the Austrian public broadcaster ORF, has added a new transponder to its capacity on Astra at 19.2 degrees East.
The new HD DTH platform HD Austria has launched with initially seven HD channels available for viewers in Austria, but expanding to ten channels in the near future.
The Austrian facilities company ORS, part of public broadcaster ORF, is planning the introduction of its own pay-TV platform to be called TV Direkt.
Austria’s transmitter company ORS has said it will start testing DVB-T2 broadcasts in the cities of Vienna and Graz before the 2010 World Cup. The company, owned by public broadcaster ORF, will test SD and HD broadcasts in the T2 standard.
Austria ORS has renewed its interest in acquiring National Unit Radio and TV Systems (NURTS), the broadcasting unit of the recently re-branded incumbent Bulgarian telco Vivacom (BTC).
