Germany: Transmitter network operator Media Broadcast has decided to sell its FM aerials and transmitters to focus on digital growth areas and services, reports Broadband TV News. FM aerials and transmitters no longer required following an auctioning off of inventory will be dismantled.
– We will pursue a distinct digital strategy in conjunction with our owner Freenet Group in future. This particularly comprises the growth areas DVB-T2 HD and DAB+ as digital technologies for TV and radio distribution, says Wolfgang Breuer, CEO of Media Broadcast.
n the next weeks, Media Broadcast will hold discussions with all users of FM aerials and transmitters interested in taking them over. If they aren’t interested, Media Broadcast will sell the infrastructure in an open auction with a minimum price in the second half of 2017.
