Tender for Television Frequencies

Once it has been defined, the new regulatory framework will proceed to tender or auction available TV frequencies in Honduras.

Monday, June 18, 2012

Currently, the National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel) has about 20 applications for licenses for broadcasting on hold while it defines a new regulatory framework to take into account the upcoming transition from analog to digital television.

Miguel Velez, president of Conatel, told Laprensa.hn, "Until now television frequencies are pending, are on hold, why?, Because right now analog programming is dominant, so there are few resources, whereas digital television will increase the resources, so we are performing “re-channelling”, if the word exists, of all the television channels in order to have more channels available."
