Within the framework of its mission of planning and attribution of the hertzian resource available for the diffusion of the audio-visual services, SCUMS have played for several years a paramount role in the deployment in France of digital terrestrial television (DVB). This one gradually took the place, area after area, of the old analogical television while bringing, on a park of more than 1,600 transmitters, all at the same time an offer of programs largely enriched and a quality by sound and image before unknown, whose level is still higher with the high definition.

A private channel which wishes being diffused in France must carry out a certain number of formalities: selection within the framework of a call to candidatures launched by the CSA, signature of a convention then authorization of use of frequency in the case of a service diffused by terrestrial hertzian way; signature of a convention or simple declaration in the case of a service diffused by another network.

By a daily follow-up, the CSA makes sure that the services of television, concerned with its competence, respect, in addition to the fundamental principles which are the respect of the human dignity and the safeguarding of the law and order, their obligations as regards programs.
