There is a Teletext comment (on TV3 Norway, I think I saw it) which
confirms that they are looking for alternate possibilities, presumably
another transponder. It also states that subscribers will have their
subscriptions lengthened for the period SF is off-line, according to a key
(since it is part of a package, we will get a one day extension of the
package per week the SF channel is off). So, it is likely that some analog
options do exist and are being considered. Kinnevik's digital operation is
probably too far off into the future for them to wait for that.
