AirPlus TV requesting a new jury

LISBON — The president of Portugal’s digital terrestrial TV jury has resigned in the wake of criticism of irregularities in the recommendations for a license.

In June the DTT jury recommended that the license for a five-multiplexer DTT feevee platform be allocated to telco Portugal Telecom.

However, rejected rival Airplus TV Portugal CEO’s Luis Nazare protested as the brother and daughter of the jury prexy, Carlos Salema, work for PT — a conflict of interest that is against Portuguese law.

The remaining two members of the jury, Pierre Lavoix and Alberto Castro, have now been entrusted with the task of producing a revised evaluation that is unlikely to be very different from the initial recommendation.

AirPlus TV has filed a petition requesting a new jury.

AirPlus CEO Nazare is a heavyweight player in this business — besides being a former president of the National Communications Authority, he is also ex-CEO of Portugal’s Post Office and adviser to former Socialist prime minister Antonio Guterres.
