Up to 1.0 Mln Bulgarians May be Left Without TV after Analogue Switch-off

Incomplete digital terrestrial television (DTT) coverage of the country threatens to leave some 350,000-1.0 million Bulgarians without access to public TV programmes, the head of the telecommunications regulator said.
DTT signal will not be available on the entire territory of the country after the analogue switch-off, which is scheduled for September 30, Veselin Bozhkov said.
For the people living in areas which are not covered by DTT signal, the only option would be to pay for cable or buy a satellite TV receiver, he added. 
It is still not clear which are these areas.
The multiplexes are not required to ensure complete DTT coverage of the country, he said, adding that legislative amendments are necessary to change this situation.
