Synopsis

The 50-year old broadcasting infrastructure is undergoing its most dramatic change ever and this is only the start. As one of the last industries to go digital, broadcasters have been trying to hang on to analogue systems as this provided them with better options to protect their lucrative oligopolies. Digital TV (both FtA and pay TV) is providing more capacity and leads to an increase of companies that want to participate in this market. For how long will the government be able to protect these interests? Broadband will soon be able to delver television services and the question will be how long the traditional broadcasters will be able to survive without undergoing major structural changes. An interesting merger of telco and broadcasting infrastructure was launched in 2004.
