Antenna Hungaria Signs Contract for Digital TV, Radio Concessions

The Hungarian National Telecommunications Authority (NHH) on September 5th 2008 signed a contract with Antenna Hungaria on the operation of terrestrial digital television and radio concessions.

 

Broadcasting company Antenna Hungaria, owned by Telediffusion de France (TDF), was announced the winner of a tender for the concessions at the end of July.

NHH chairman Daniel Pataki said the switch to digital from analogue television would expand the offering of channels and increase competition across the country. It will also mean the introduction of a new service in Hungary: mobile television.
