A Fair Transition To Digital
01 October 2005Via Satellite
The European Commission earlier this year adopted the goal of encouraging member states to achieve the transition from analog to digital television by 2012. The Commission seeks to help expedite the process while avoiding anti-competitive effects or favoring one platform over another. Because satellite digital broadcasting is a major success in Europe, the entire satellite industry has a stake in an efficient transition that avoids unfair subsidies of terrestrial platforms for digital television.
