As you may well know, in Turkey, we still do not have any DTT investment. It is not yet clear, weather we will have in future. According to the Act 6112, it is definitely clear that Turkey will build DTT network, but the strict dates, the dates for the ASO which were in the Act, are now not clear. Which confuses every body in the broadcast sector.
Recently, actually yesterday, an important announcement was made by the EBU, on the spectrum usage. This announcement, which can be read through this link, points the problems which may occur if the usage of 700 & even sub700 band is shared with non broadcast services before the pre announced date which was set to be 2030.
These issues surely makes the discussion, should Turkey start to build DTT or looks for other solution, more meaningful.
I will try to keep you updated with the discussions in Turkey.
