Spain's national public broadcaster TVE has signed an agreement with transmission operator Abertis Telecom (the main one distributing DTT signal all over the country) to take the channel’s DTT signals to all homes through satellite Hispasat.


The agreement contemplates reaching the 1.5% of the population who would never be able to receive terrestrial TV signals. The decision will reuse TVE signals already present on the satellite which have been historically used for thte distribution of the broadcaster's signal to the terrestrial centres.

Abertis will adapt the existing CA system which will be in-the-clear and at the industry's disposal for the development of the necessary decoders.

This initiative will be at the disposal of the rest of national broadcasters for their DTT total distribution, with Abertis able to use the already-existing DTT signal on the satellite. The solution will also allow regional broadcasters to adopt it for the same purpose.

The autonomous region of Madrid has already chosen the Abertis Telecon-Hispasat solution for the total extension of DTT in this region contemplating a 100% coverage of capital Madrid.
