For all the events during the month of January, RTP will be ensuring access to the international signal at the location, on Avenida Da Índia, where the TV Compound will be located, as well as its distribution across the EBU satellite network, and EBU’s digital platform (Newsdirect).

To facilitate the unilateral operations, the Host Broadcaster will make space available at the TV Compound for mobile production units, a fully equipped Stand-Up spot and three partially equipped ones in the Press Centre.

In a second phase, and always dependent on the evolution of the pandemic, RTP will widen the range of production services to improve conditions for news coverage along with the radio and television broadcasters interested in accompanying the on-site event.

The technical facilities and services mentioned, including satellite signal, will be made available, free of charge and on a first come first served basis.
