  • The operator had asked for more frequencies needed for installation of transposers. In order to install a SFN network the microwave network is needed to deliver the DVB-T transport stream to each transmitting site. The experiments with the gap filler failed – the power of such transmitters is to weak to build a national network.

    • 3. Digital Terrestrial Frequency Plan (SLO)
        • 8 layers with national/regional coverage
        • In some parts of the country more frequencies will be available (the Capital city Ljubljana and the West part of the country)
    • 4. Slovenia – TV F acts
        • 2 mi llion inhabitants
        • 680 000 TV households
        • 25 % of TV households receiving TV over the air
        • More than 60 TV channels (terrestrial and cable)
        • 3 nationwide public TV channels (SLO1, SLO2, SLO3)
        • 3 nationwide commercial TV channel s (POP TV, Kanal A, TV3)
        • 14 local/regional TV channels using terrestrial frequencies
    • 5. TV platforms
      • While we are trying to put in operation the DTT platform, some other TV platforms in Slovenia are developing quickly :
      • Rapid growth of IPTV penetration
      • Introduction of DTH platform which competes for the same audience as DTT (in rural areas)
      • Penetration of different
      • TV platforms in Slovenia.

      • Setting MPEG - 4 Part 10 for the obligatory AVC standard (end of 2006)
      • Frequencies for the 1st national DTT network issued (beginning of 2007)
    • 8. Regulatory Milestones
      • Temporary division of 1st national multiple x (mid 2007)
      • Scanning interest in 2nd national DTT network (mid 07)
      • First digital programme licenses issued (end 2007)
      • Digital Broadcasting Act (end of 2007)
      • Preparing a public tender for 2nd national network / multiplex (currently in the process)
      • Preparing a public tender for digital programme licenses (currently in the process)
    • 9. DSO according to the Law
      • Region by region principle
      • Simulcasting officially starts when a 90% DTT coverage in a region is achieved (at least 1 mux)
      • Two official dates:
        • The last day for starting simulcasting period is 1 June 2009.
        • The switch off date has been set for 31 December 2010.
      • Obligatory PSB coverage at the switch-off date min 95% of the territory
    • 10. Digital Broadcasting Act
      • Article 15.
        • Public broadcaster should provide the capacity in the 1st multiplex for (other) TV programmes holding the national licenses (if only one multiplex existing)
        • If there is only one multiplex operating nationwide, the public broadcaster could get the license for the next multiplex only when no other applicants are identified .
      • Article 29.
        • The Agency should issue digital licenses for all programmes holding analogue licenses , 6 months after the Act will be accepted. In cases where the equilibrium of analog and digital coverage can not be achieved, the Agency allocates bigger coverage.
        • The simulcasting period starts when at east one multiplex is covering at least 90% population and when all TV stations on this geographical area have a possibility to be a part of digital multipleks .
        • Even if the previous condition is not achieved, the simulcasting period starts on 1.6.2009 at the latest.
    • 11. Electronic Communications Act (2004, 2006)
      • Article 56a (Law on e-communications) essentially changes the digital broadcasting frequencies assignment procedure
          • Broadcasting Council is no more asked for the opinion on the spectrum allocation table
          • To assign a broadcasting frequency, the public tender is not obligatory. The procedure is the same as in the case of assigning the frequencies for the radio communication networks.
          • There are no programme conditions associated with the digital broadcasting frequencies
          • The Broadcasting Council does not suggest to whom the digital frequency shall be assigned
        • There is no reimbursement fee in exchange for using the scarce public resource

      • Situation on the MPEG-4 Set Top Box market
      • Current situation
    • 13. Decision on DVB-T strategy
      • The delay in implementation of DVB-T can be used as an opportunity (no legacy systems or networks)
      • Dilemma on MPEG-4 solved:
        • Better spectrum utilization
        • Opportunity for implementing HDTV in the future
      • Media legislation
        • Amended Law on electronic communications
        • Amended Mass media law
        • New draft Digital broadcasting law
        • (Can we use “ cable like” content regulation on DVB-T networks?)
    • 14. Regulatory challenges
      • I n trying to establish DTT platform in the Slovenian ( small and under-diversified ) TV market, the crucial regulatory questions are:
        • How to create a favourable regulatory environment to attract potential operators, willing to invest in the Slovenian DTT networks ?
        • W hat kind of TV offer would be most suitable to fill the vast capacity of first two national multiplexes ?
        • How could we make people interested in DTT ?
        • How to assure the future existence of local (now analogue) TV channels ?
    • 15. Opportunities
      • As a small country with considerably high penetration of cable and other non-terrestrial platforms, Slovenia could be a country with rather simple switchover process.
      • However, the transition from analogue to digital reception of TV channels should not be the only goal of the DSO process.
      • By determining MPEG-4 for the obligatory AVC standard, Slovenia decided both for more efficient use of spectrum and for more diverse choice of high quality TV services (+ new services and HDTV)

      • Current situation
    • 17. Current DTT Coverage
      • M ore than 60 % of the Slovenian population covered
    • 18. 3rd DVB-T multiplex
      • Commitment to HDTV
        • Strong commitment to HDTV programming by Public and Commercial TV stations
        • In order to maintain the idea of reasonable high number of terrestrial digital TV programmes , third network with reduced coverage will be introduced
    • 19. Multiplex A (RTV Slovenija)
      • PSB TV channels: 3 national, 2 regional (occupying 4 places)
      • Commercial TV channels: 3 national (min 40% coverage ATT)
    • 20. Multiplex B ( planned )
      • Planned model
      • But.. not enough legal certainty
      • Article 133 of the Mass Media Act envisaged a penalty provision for operators of DTT networks, which would eventually disseminate a TV service without the so called digital programme license, stipulated under Article 104a
    • 21. 2 Tenders Needed to Put in Operation Mux B
      • T he only way to establish the 2nd national multiplex is through two separate public tenders :
        • one for selecting the network operator ,
        • the other one for granting digital programme licenses.
      • The operator, once chosen through the tender, will have to build the national network and put multiplex in operation by transmitting the TV channels with digital programme licenses.

      • Situation on the MPEG-4 Set Top Box market
      • Current situation
    • 23. Selection of TV channels for mux B
      • … could be a problem
      • The price of mux operator’s services could be around 450.000 € per TV channel per year, which is an expense that an average Slovenian TV broadcaster can not afford to pay in the transition period.

      • APEK started negotiation process with Public broadcaster to divide 1 st multiplex:
        • 4/7 will be used for public programmes
        • 3/7 will be used for commercial TV programmes with national programming strategy
      • On 17 th Avgust APEK issued public appeal for scanning the interest in frequencies for 2 nd national multiplex
        • 4 operators have expressed the interest therefore the public tender will be published
      • APEK will publish an appeal to assign small local digital frequencies to the local broadcasters
    • 27. Public inquiry on 2. multiplex
      • On 17th of August APEK took a decision to issue a public appeal to examine the interest on building a 2nd DVB-T multiplex.
      • 3 frequencies for 3 SFN networks:
          • East: channel 67
          • C enter: channel 64
          • West: channel 66
      • Coding standard : ITU-T H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10).
      • Network parameters must enable net bit rate of 22 Mbit/s
      • Minimal coverage dynamics:
        • 1st year: 40% of population
        • 2nd year: 60% of population
        • 3rd year: 80% of population
