Welcome to a new dawn in Digital Television Broadcasting (DVB-T2) – are you ready?

The digital television transition, also called analogue switch-off (ASO), digital migration, or analogue
shutdown, is the process in which older analogue television broadcasting technology is converted to and replaced by digital television. The ASO primarily involves the conversion of analog terrestrial television broadcasting infrastructure to digital terrestrial (DTT), a major benefit being extra frequencies on the radio spectrum and lower broadcasting costs, as well as improved viewing qualities for consumers. Ensure you’re ready for the DTT Migration!

Understanding what you will need

Digital-to-analog converters

Analogue only TVs are incapable of receiving over-the-air broadcasts without the addition of a set-top converter box. Consequently, a digital converter box – an electronic device that connects to an analog television – must be used in order to allow the television to receive digital broadcasts.

Digital-ready televisions

If you already own a “digital-ready” television with built-in digital tuner, you may only require a DVB-T amplified indoor antenna. However, depending on your distance from the Broadcast transmitter (eg: 20km+), you may require the addition of a UHF outdoor antenna connected directly to your TV.
