German competition regulator the Bundeskartellamt has given a green light for transmission services provider Media Broadcast to build a pay platform for the country’s new DVB-T2-based digital-terrestrial infrastructure.
Media Broadcast plans to build a pay TV platform for HD services in particular as the country’s DTT infrastructure transitions to DVB-T2, probably from next year. Commercial broadcasters RTL Group and ProSiebenSat.1 are expected to offer encrypted HD services on the plartform, while other broadcasters could offer a range of encrypted SD and HD services. Public services will remain unencrypted.
Bundeskartellamt president Andreas Mundt said that there are no anti-competitive concerns about the plan.
