At the beginning of the event, the results of the National Council’s competition for DVB-T/T2 multichannel broadcasting in Odesa Region settlements was announced.

In his speech, State Secretary Artem Bidenko noted that the decision on Odesa Region was quite quick. “It can be stated that thanks to this competition, summarized by the National Council today, the state security strand in Odesa Region was created. “That is, the state on its own has created a network of digital television broadcasting in one of the most difficult border regions of Ukraine,” Bidenko said.

Executive Secretary of the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting Oleksandr Iliashenko informed that there had been 15 application for the competition, but two applicants had not paid the security, so only thirteen candidate had stood for the competition, among which eight had been chosen as winners. “We are going to recommend Odesa Region as the first region to switch off analogue television,” Iliashenko said.

Serhiy Kostynskyi, a member of the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting, concluded that now an additional state multiplex was created in Odesa Region to broadcast to ‘white spots’ along the entire borderline.
