RT admits digital TV launch delay

by Andy Sennitt



The director general of Irish public broadcaster RT has publicly admitted that launching Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) in September is no longer a reasonable prospect. When the consortium originally charged with rolling out the commercial arm of DTT walked away from the project in April, sources close to Communications Minister Eamon Ryan insisted the development would have no impact on RTɒs plans to launch public service DTT in September.

But at a briefing last week, RT boss Cathal Goan said that it was his view that RT and the commercial operator should launch their services simultaneously, and that means RT will have to wait.
At the same briefing, Mr Goan also confirmed that RTɒs continued 300,000 annual investment in DAB digital radio was a live question being considered as part of cost cuts designed to combat a predicted 68m shortfall in the national broadcasters 2009 revenue.

But he added that DABs support would be viewed in light of the expense of establishing the platform, and the benefit to the public of the four extra radio stations that are available through DAB in the Greater Dublin area, the North East Coast and Cork and Limerick cities, as well as online and on NTL and Chorus Digital.
