CSA expands DTT coverage in Rhône-Alpes

French media regulator the CSA has announced the launch of digital-terrestrial TV transmissions in the Rhône-Alpes districts of Chambéry-Mont-du-Chat, Gex-Montrond and Grenoble-Chamrousse.

The beginning of transmissions means that digital-terrestrial TV will be available to the 13% of the population of the Rhône-Alpes region that until now have only been able to receive three or four analogue channels. Analogue signals are set to be switched off in the region between June and September next year.

Separately, the CSA has given a warning to digital channel Direct 8 over unauthorised product placement during the transmission of fiction series Ma Super Croisière.
