The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) plans to issue 36 licences for providing commercial digital terrestrial television service in February. 

The reserve price for a commercial digital TV licence will likely not exceed 500 million baht, and a licence would be valid for 15 years, said Col Natee Sukolrat, chairman of the NBTC's broadcasting committee.
