MYTV in payment dispute with TM


Chan was responding to StarBiz

PETALING JAYA: The free-to-air TV migration from analogue to digital seems to have hit a snag, with services being suspended in several states over disputes of non-payment between MYTV Broadcasting Sdn Bhd and Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM).

The suspension also puts in jeopardy the “analogue switch-off” planned for the first quarter of 2019. If not resolved soon, it could potentially result in a delay in the release of the 700MHz spectrum meant for the telecoms industry and the regional switch-off with Singapore and Thailand.
