Belgium - Blank DVB-T2 signal continue to be broadcast

DVB-T2 signals continue to be broadcast in the Flemish-speaking part of the country, but no content is shown.

The broadcast network operator Norkring continues to broadcast the signal provided to it by the pay operator Telenet. However, the signal is blank. Because of contractual obligations, Telenet is obliged to continue providing a signal for Telenor to broadcast. Otherwise, it risks penalties for renouncing the transmission contract prior to the end date.

However, following the failure of its pay-DTT service Teletenne, Telenet ended the consumer service on 31 March. However, a blank signal continues to be transmitted.
