Le Conseil Supérieur de l’Audiovisuel, the French broadcast industry authority, said that it plans to open a call for digital terrestrial licenses for France’s next 20 biggest cities. This after relaunching its call for digital radio networks in Paris, Marseille and Nice.
According to the CSA, the 23 cities account for 62% of the French population.
The licensing process, which is backed by smaller and independent stations in addition to the public broadcaster Radio France, is opposed by the big analog station, has yet to be approved fully.
