Capodistria to leave Hotbird
November 5, 2019 10.27 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul
Radio and TV Capodistria will stop using Eutelsatís Hotbird from November 9.
According to the public broadcaster RTV Slovenia (RTV Slo), this is due to financial reasons and alternative solutions for their distribution are now being sought.
One possibility is the rebroadcasting of Capodistria TV programmes on DTT in Croatia and an initial response from the Croatian regulator is expected shortly.
Similar initiatives are also under way in Italy, with cable and internet distribution being considered.
A free application named Capo4distria is already available to the public for all mobile devices and smart TVs and programmes can be followed live on the multimedia portal https://capodistria.rtvslo.si.
Radio and TV Capodistria are operated by RTV Slo and aimed at the Italian minorities communities living in Slovenia and Croatia.
