Media Broadcast is planning a soft launch of its DVB-T2 multiplex for the first channels, including public as well as private stations, in conurbations in the spring of 2016, Chief Commercial Officer B2B Holger Meinzer told TV Digital. UEFA men's football matches from France will be broadcast in HD. Regular operations will start in the first quarter of 2017 and the switch to DVB-T2 is due to be completed across the country by mid-2019.
Meinzer announced that 50 TV channels in HD and SD – about twice as many as now – will be available on the new platform. DVB-T2 will also be available in regions where DVB-T is not yet available. Facing the new TV and video opportunities through the internet, the new platform is conceived as a hybrid offer where traditional television can be combined with additional channel bundles. The existing Multithek will be continued within the DVB-T2 offer.
In order to receive DVB-T2, users need a suitable television set and digital receiver as well as a CI+- interface for encrypted programmes. Media Broadcast will discuss the specifications and a special identification mark for such devices at a roundtable with the State Media Authorities so consumers can recognise that devices are suitable by a logo. The price for a monthly subscription to the terrestrial services have not been set yet but Meinzer said they would be in the single-digit euro region.
