Analogue TV Switch-off Set for Sept 2013

Analogue TV Switch-off Set for Sept 2013

Bulgaria's transport ministry said analogue terrestrial TV broadcasting in the country is planned to be turned off on September 1, 2013.

There will be a six-month overlap when digital and analogue broadcasting will be used simultaneously, starting from March 1, 2013, the ministry said in a draft plan for the local deployment of digital terrestrial television broadcasting (DVB-T) published on its website on Monday.

The schedule for the shutdown of analogue transmitters will be determined and overseen by a newly-established digital television body which will also be responsible for the progress of the project.

By the end of last year, the transition to digital terrestrial broadcasting had been completed in 17 EU member states. The transition is also a fact in Switzerland, Croatia and Norway. Greece, alike Bulgaria, targets a 2013 switch-off.
