Paraguay to auction new DTT channel this year

Tuesday 8 August 2017 | 11:22 CET | News
The head of Paraguay's communications regulator Conatel has announced that a third licence for a digital TV (DTT) channel will be tendered in the second half of the year. Teresita Palacios said the watchdog was expecting to collect another PYG 2 billion, having previously raised PYG 4 billion from the previous tender for two DTT channels. It plans to use part of the funds raised to acquire set-top boxes for low-income households ahead of the digital switchover scheduled for 2020.
