Bulgarian satellite television provider Bulsatcom has won a digital multiplex licence, news daily Dnevnik (www.dnevnik.bg) reported, quoting the country's telecoms regulator.
Three companies - DVBT, Bulsatcom and Dinamiks, had notified their interest in the country's seventh digital multiplex licence.
The Communications Regulation Commission opened the tender in January after the European Commission referred Bulgaria to the European Court of Justice for the non-transparent organisation of the previous tenders for six licences.
The issue of the digital terrestrial broadcasting licences is part of Bulgaria's analogue switch-off.
Bulsatcom is also licensed to operate as a mobile carrier and plans to launch a satellite.
