About SDN

SDN is a UK based digital terrestrial television (DTT) multiplex operator, acquired by ITV plc in March 2005.  It holds the licence from Ofcom to broadcast DTT channels over a specified bandwidth, and constitutes roughly a sixth of UK's current DTT capacity, or a third of all commercially available capacity. SDN derives its income from broadcasting channels on behalf of content providers, with channels marketed to consumers as part of the Freeview, Top Up TV, or BT Vision services.  SDN revenues in 2008 were £33m.

Within SDN's current capacity of up to ten full videostreams, half is reserved under the 1996 Broadcasting Act for use by Five which broadcasts its three channels on DTT and sub-licenses the remainder of the capacity to Top Up TV. The other channels carried by SDN include QVC, Bid TV, CNN, CITV, Bauer Radio, Teletext, and Quest.
