1 Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) is a Great European Success Story Challenges for DTT The European Spectrum Discussion ITU-D and National Media and Infocommunications Authority Seminar Budapest, January 2014 Lars Backlund, Secretary General, Broadcast Networks Europe (BNE) Represents Terrestrial Network Operators in 22 countries BNE ITU-D Budapest /LB, Page 1 {Format 16:10}

2 BNE - Members operating in 22 countries A trade organisation for Terrestrial Broadcast Network Operators for Radio and TV in Europe based in Brussels Long term opportunities for terrestrial broadcasting Current issues: Spectrum 700 MHz, UHF-band Interference, Co-existence New Services BNE ITU-D Budapest /LB, Page 2 {Format 16:10}

3 BNE 16 members, 22 countries Spain UK Czech Republic Greece Finland Serbia Italy Norway, Belgium Croatia Austria Switzerland Romania Italy Ireland France, Germany, Estonia, Sweden, Hungary, Poland, Monaco Denmark BNE ITU-D Budapest /LB, Page 3 {Format 16:10}

4 Households receiving TV from terrestrial networks >75% 50-75% 25-50% < 25% Terrestrials - approx: >100 million households >250 million people 45-50% of Europeans Based on Eurobarometer 396, 2013 Data not collected BNE ITU-D Budapest /LB, Page 4 {Format 16:10}

5 TV Reception, EU28 Households Terrestrial; 46% Cable; 31% Satellite; 23% Broadband; 10% Terrestrials - approx: >100 million households >250 million people 45-50% of Europeans 2000 TV Channels Data from Eurobarometer 396, 2013 and Mavise. Adds to more than 100%. Households may use more than one platform BNE ITU-D Budapest /LB, Page 5 {Format 16:10}

6 DTT is a Great European Success Story DTT is now launched in nearly all EU member states. DTT networks now serves some 2000 TV channels, about 50% of European households with 250 million viewers, each spending some 4 hours watching linear TV every day. In addition, secondary TVs rely on DTT. European consumers have embraced DTT and are investing in new receiving equipment. More than 1 billion TV receivers with integrated DTT tuners are now in use around the world. Low cost for media delivery. Network cost is typically between per household per month for up to 60 channels distributed 24/7. Per channel distribution cost can be as low as 1c per household per month. Very easy access for consumers and no cost at point of consumption of a wide offering of free-to-air content. DTT is a key pillar for European content creation BNE ITU-D Budapest /LB, Page 6 {Format 16:10}

7 DTT and the Importance of Spectrum DTT depends on UHF spectrum for provision. Consumers and the Broadcasting Industry have made substantial efforts and investments in the Digital Switchover and in making the 800 MHz band available for other services than TV. Currently available spectrum for DTT is fully utilized in many countries. Migration to more efficient technologies for DTT is underway to meet demand for additional and higher higher bandwidth services, e.g. HD. The 700 MHz band represents 30% of available spectrum for DTT. Any changed use would imply severe constraints for service delivery, prevent innovation and technology migration, require a long time to re-plan current usage and demand very significant investments for Consumers and the Broadcast Industry. The emerging discussion on the long term use of the whole UHF TV spectrum is a threat and may lead to a regulatory induced failure of DTT. This is not in the interest of the European Consumer BNE ITU-D Budapest /LB, Page 7 {Format 16:10}
