Malaysia selects 3 bidders for DTT infrastructure contract

Friday 9 November 2012 | 10:59 CET | News
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has shortlisted three of the eight bidders for the Digital Terrestrial Television Broadcast (DTTB) infrastructure contract. The three shortlisted bidders are: i-Media Broadcasting Solutions, Puncak Semangat and Redtone Network. They will have to submit a more detailed business plan based on their original submission in the first round of evaluation. This infrastructure will provide the necessary platform for current Free-to-Air (FTA) broadcasters to migrate from the current analogue system to a digital broadcasting format. It will also eventually allow for more broadcasters to come on stream to provide more channels over and above those currently available. The results of the second round evaluation are expected to be announced in July 2013 and the first roll-out of DTTB services to the public is then expected to be in early 2014, while full nationwide coverage is targeted for end-2015.
