Monday is a federal holiday in the United States this week, the day before the originally planned end of analogue television. Some American stations will still be switching off their analogue transmissions, others will now delay by four months. The whole process appears to be chaotically confused. It’s also credit crunch time for Sirius XM satellite radio, which could seek bankruptcy protection rather than be bailed out of crushing debt by a satellite television operator. Meanwhile in Barcelona the Mobile World Congress is the main event for the mobile industry and we expect to hear more about various plans for radio and television mobile satellite services in Europe. We’ll keep you posted on developments.
