Digital TV rules rejigged

- +

Digital TV will not have a broadcast trial period and all 24 channel operators must air their programmes within 30 days after they are awarded licenses, says the legal subcommittee of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). 

A NBTC source said the subcommittee reasoned the 90-day licence issuing period will not include any broadcast trials, meaning the NBTC must issue licences within 60 days after the deadline for digital TV operators to submit their documents — Feb 26.

However, the licence term will have some effects if the broadcast trials are not included in the period.
