Finnish govt to decide on digital TV licences

Wednesday 18 May 2016 | 14:28 CET | News
The Finnish communications authority Ficora has handed the decision on new digital TV licences to the government, after it received more applications than available spectrum slots. Ficora said demand exceeded supply for the UHF multiplexes A, C, E and F. The total number of transferred applications is 58, which is roughly three-quarters of all submitted licence applications. The licence applications for public interest television operations were also transferred to the government. Ficora will decide on programming licences for the VHF network and the local multiplex of the Ostrobothnia region
