Central Macedonia wrote:TV6 Media Group have announced that TV6 Spainard (soon to be Spainard's 2nd commercial TV channel) will be offered as subscription-based terrestrial TV channel in which citizens will have to pay R3,20 per month to watch the channel digitally (via its digital channel 6 signal) and will need a special, digital decoder box (that will be supplied by 6Hub) so in order to receive the channel full time. For people who are not subscribing to TV6 Spainard, they will be able to watch some of the channel's programming on it's analog channel 6 signal (from 5pm-5am on weekdays and from 4pm-6am on weekends) at no cost.

In addition, TV6 Media Group also began plans to utilize TV6 Spainard's analog frequency (on channel 6) as a free-to-air, time-sharing channel by launching a direct simulcast of TV6 Eos (customized with local adverts) in which it will be broadcast from 5am-5pm on weekdays and from 6am-4pm on weekends. TV6 executives have said to us that this move will enable viewers to watch their favorite TV shows from Central Macedonia and the world during the day, while waiting to catch TV6 Spainard's original programming in the nighttime.

Meanwhile, RTCM Media Group d.o.o (a division of Eos News & Media d.o.o) have announced yesterday that it will utilize SBC TV's primary analog transmitter (in downtown Asturiosia) as the basis of moving its analog frequency from channel 6 (with an directional pattern) to channel 2 (with an non-directional pattern), but will install a new 240kW digital transmitter (near the station's studios in downtown Asturiosia) by next week so in an effort to provide better, crystal-clear reception of SBC TV on its new channel 2 frequency.

More details later.

RTCM Media Group d.o.o (a division of Eos News & Media d.o.o) have announced today that SBC TV has installed a new 240kW digital transmitter near its studios in downtown Asturiosia (as of 6am, Monday morning) in which it will help improve the channel's digital signal (which will be transmitted on channel 2 for digital TV viewers) starting so that it can fully cover around 90% of the Spainardian territory. However, RTCM officials have said to us that they won't turn on SBC TV's digital transmitter until at least next week, due to technical reasons.

Meanwhile, TV6 Media Group have announced that TV6 Spainard (soon to be Spainard's second commercial TV network) will install 2 powerful TV transmitters (digital/analog) near the Royal Palace (located in downtown Asturiosia) by tomorrow so that it can both provide clearer signals in which it will cover at least 95% of the Spainardian territory. In addition, TV6 officials have said to us that TV6 Spainard will likely turn on its digital transmitter by Thursday (for testing) by airing a temporary simulcast of TV6 Eos (a subscription TV channel that's being aimed towards the Otoris (Eos) region) for at least 2-3 months, with the testing of its analog transmitter taking place next week.

Lastly, RTCM Media Group have officially remapped EA.TV Central Macedonia's digital channel from channel 33.2 to channel 21 as of yesterday so in an strong effort to synchronize the signals and to provide a clear signal throughout Central Macedonia. EA.TV Central Macedonia is scheduled to fully rebrand as EA.TV 21 by September 2020 so in a strong effort to improve it's ratings and to target younger viewers.
