Deutsche Telekom to begin phasing out analogue TV service in April

Tuesday 13 March 2018 | 16:09 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom announced it will phase out the analogue TV and radio services in its 'Zu Hause Kabel' packages by the end of 2018 and offer these channels only in digital as Germany proceeds with its transition to digital TV. Telekom said its digital offerings include over 135 unencrypted TV channels, including 25 in HD and 35 foreign-language stations, as well as pay-TV packages and radio. Users with a digital TV must simply carry out a channel scan on the day of the analogue switch-off to receive digital programming, said Telekom.
