Chile's telecommunications regulator Subtel said it has rejected a requested from free-to-air (FTA) channels to further delay the country's analogue blackout from 2024 to 2026. According to decree no. 50 published on 02 July, a total of four phases must be completed by the 2024 deadline, which was previously delayed from 2022.
