Major coup for Hungarian DTT
By Chris Dziadul
The Hungarian DTT platform MinDig TV has added RTL Klub, the country’s leading TV station, to its channel line up.
The move is the direct result of an agreement that has been reached by MinDig TV’s operator Antenna Hungária (AH) and RTL Klub and is valid until the expiry of AH’s DTT licence in September 2020.
MinDig TV was launched in December 2008 and can currently be received in 60% of Hungarian households.
Its FTA offer is still limited to the public channels Duna TV and Duna ll Autonomia, and now also RTL Klub, while viewers with Antenna Digital Terra + pre-paid cards can also receive the news-based channels ATV and Hir TV.
