Telenet pulls the plug out on its DVB-T2 network

Broadband TV news is reporting today that Belgium's Telenet is stopping its DVB-T service, the Belgian equivalent of Freeview. The public broadcaster will still be distributed by the DVB-T, but the rest (including distribution of Dutch public channels) will stop on March 31st. The operator says existing customers will get a refund to cover the costs of the receiver (140 Euro) and any remaining subscription. That's it then. Over and out. Telenet only had 18 channels, rather thin in this day and age. And several popular commercial channels were missing.
