Three applicants have submitted offers in the tender to re-transmit Digital Audio Broacasting+ (DAB+) terrestrial signals for Polish Radio for the next three years, reports Rpkom.pl. The applicants were Emitel, Polish Broadcasting Networks (PSN) and the new company Bcast, which is unknown in the industry.

The tender is divided into three parts. The first one includes encoding, multiplexing and regionalisation of radio programmes and additional data (i. e. construction of the so-called head-end station); the second one includes transmission and distribution of DAB+ signals in Katowice and Upper Silesia; and the third one includes the service for Warsaw and its environs.

Polish Radio has budgeted the project at EUR 850,000. Emitel was the only applicant to say it would bid in all three parts of the tender and budgeted them at PLN 620,000, PLN 975,000 and PLN 487,000 respectively. Its competitor PSN budgeted the first part at PLN 1.1 million and the third one at PLN 900,000. The third applicant, the previously unknown Bcast, proposed PLN 1.3 million for the first part and PLN 800,000 for the third part.
