Wednesday 6 June 2018 | 15:00 CET | News
Portugal's Minister of Culture said in Parliament that the allocation of the new licences for two private channels on DTT will "certainly" take place this year, reports Correio de Manha. Luis Filipe Castro Mendes assured MPs that he is working on the new specifications, which will then be handed over to the Regulatory Entity for Social Communication (ERC). The deadline to move forward with the new DTT licences "will depend on the decision and the assessment that will be made by the regulator", he added.
