Spain - Mediaset against reduction of DTT service offering

The head of Mediaset Spain, Giuseppe Tringali, has declared that it will not reduce its service offering on the DTT platform.

Currently, the government is in discussion with broadcasters to reduce the number of multiplexes that they had been allocated as part of the digital dividend. It is seeking to reduce the cost of moving broadcast services currently located in the 800 MHz band to other frequency channels.

One proposal calls for the public service broadcaster RTVE and regional broadcasters to reduce their DTT service offering.

Mediaset Spain operates the leading broadcast television programme services Cinco and Cuatro.
