Hungary starts residential phase of digital switchover

Wednesday 13 March 2013 | 10:14 CET | News
Hungary's telecommunications authority NMHH launched the residential phase of the digital switchover during which analogue television reception with indoor antenna will be replaced by digital terrestrial broadcasting. Around 0.5 million households will switch to digital TV during two phases that will close on 31 July and 31 October. 

Traditional terrestrial (analogue) transmissions will be gradually replaced by the digital broadcasts in 2013 so end-user devices will need to be switched to digital reception. The authority will help those who need to obtain and install the equipment and those who need information about the transition via a website and a toll-free hot line. To determine who is entitled to state assistance, the authorities launched a national survey. State aid will be awarded only if it is officially requested. 

NMHH divided Hungary's territory into six large regions for the effective implementation of the national digital broadcasting switchover. According to NMHH's digital switchover map, the first phase covers the east and south-east parts of the country, while the second covers the central part of the country.
