Digital Multiplex Auction Continues with an Additional Primary Round


After the two primary bid rounds of the auction held for awarding the digital television multiplexes, the auction commission announced that the demand no longer exceeds the offer in any of the multiplex categories. There are however multiplexes that have not been awarded.
The primary rounds stage thus ends, while the auction continues with an additional primary round where the bidders may bid for the multiplexes which have not been awarded. The additional primary round is scheduled for Friday, 6 June, from 10.00 o’clock. Both bidders may participate in the additional primary round, regardless of whether they acquired multiplexes in the previous rounds or not.
The auction rounds are held at the ANCOM premises – Bucharest Regional Division in 4 Lucian Blaga Street, Block M110, Sector 3, Bucharest, where each bidder is allocated a room endowed with a telephone and Internet access. Only the persons mandated to represent the bidding operators are allowed to access the auction place.
ANCOM auctioned out five multiplexes, four in UHF and one in VHF, in the DVB-T2 standard. The first multiplex in UHF (MUX 1) will be used to broadcast free-to-air the public and private television stations that are currently broadcast in analogue terrestrial system, under transparent, competitive and non-discriminatory conditions, in accordance with the provisions of the Audiovisual Law.
