Digital Migration Policy - Proposed Amendments

Posted by LA Thornton on Thursday, August 25, 2011
The Minister of Communications published an intention to amend the digital migration policy issued in 2008.  The amendments set the switch on date for dual illumination as April 2012 and the cutoff date for analogue TV for December 2013.  In addition, the DVB-TS standard is proposed for digital terrestrial TV, DVB-S for digital satellite TV, and MPEG-4 as the compression standard, while existing services allowed to migrate when it is commercially viable.  Set top boxes will be subsidised through the Universal Service and Access Fund.  And set top boxes will have features enabling access to e-government services.
