Regulator claims law on digital broadcasting needs amending

The Telecommunications Office, Slovakia’s market regulator, considers it necessary to amend the recently adopted law on digital broadcasting again, even though the president just signed an amendment to the Digital Broadcasting Law on April 18.

The law specifies conditions for the shift from analogue to digital terrestrial broadcasting, which should be introduced in Slovakia in 2012 at the latest. The Telecommunications Office doubts that Slovakia will be able to end analogue broadcasting by this deadline.

Moreover, the law prevents new channels that would like to broadcast through terrestrial technology from entering the market for a long time, and it does not prevent current broadcasters from applying for financial compensation.
