Uruguay sets analogue switch-off for 2015

Tuesday 15 May 2012 | 10:31 CET | News
The Uruguayan government has set the date for completion of the analog switch-off process for 21 November 2015. Uruguay will launch DTT broadcast in the next 12 months, Milenio reports, citing Sergio de Cola, director of Uruguay's telecommunications department (Dinatel). The government has assigned 20 frequency bands for DTT broadcast in the Montevideo capital. Uruguay will migrate to the Japanese-Brazilian digital TV system. The government initially opted for the European DVB-T standard in 2007, but in 2010 it decided to abandon this plan and implement the Japanese-Brazilian digital TV standard (ISDB).
