Spanish advertisers latest to appeal against DTT award

Tuesday 26 January 2016 | 15:19 CET | News
Spanish Advertisers Association AEA is the latest body to appeal against the government's decision to award six new DTT channels to Atresmedia, Mediaset, Real Madrid TV, Grupo Secuoya, 13TV and Kiss FM, reports Europa Press. The AEA lodged a contentious-administrative appeal against the government's 16 October decision on the grounds that awarding further licences to Mediaset and Atresmedia amounted to a breach of the tender conditions. The advertisers' body believes the government's move serves to create a duopoly that concentrates more than 86 percent of ad spending.
