Following a public consultation on the deployment of digital-terrestrial pay-TV services launched last year, French media regulator the CSA has said that it will allocate just over half of the available capacity on the R3 multiplex for a single pay-TV service, while the remaining capacity on the multiplex will be allocated to on-demand services.
The winner of the pay-TV licence will be obliged to offer a services that reaches 95% of the countryï¿½s population by November next year.
The CSA has also launched a public consultation on the launch of an appeal for candidates to offer a free-to-air local TV service in the Nantes area.
Separately, the CSA has said that a new EPG programme-numbering scheme of cable operator Numericable meets the concerns it expressed about the operatorï¿½s initial proposal for a new numbering scheme in May. The CSA had previously found that Numericableï¿½s plans lacked transparency by placing certain thematic channels in sections of the EPG that didnï¿½t match the content of the channels. Numericable still faces an outstanding issue relating to the numbering of public channel France 5.
