Decision on TV tender published

The General Secretariat for Information and Communication will be responsible for overseeing a tender for new television licenses.

According to a decision signed by State Minister Nikos Pappas and published in the Government Gazette on Wednesday, the secretariat will form a committee that will be responsible for holding the tender, which will be for four license to broadcast a digital high-definition signal across Greece.

The minister’s decision did not state when the process would begin. The decision to limit the number of licenses available to four, from the current eight channels that broadcast nationally, has angered media firms, which suggested they will challenge the process.
