Media Broadcast to complete Freenet TV expansion in autumn

Monday 16 July 2018 | 13:14 CET | News
Freenet TV's parent company Media Broadcast said up to 3.9 million households in seven more regions of Germany will be able to receive Freenet TV in HD via antenna beginning this autumn, as a result of the conversion to the DVB-T2 standard at 32 transmissions sites across Germany. Households in Bielefeld in North Rhine-Westphalia will have access to Freenet via the DVB-T2 transmission standard from a yet unspecified date in August, and it will be available beginning 26 September in Chemnitz-Geyer and Chemnitz-Reichenhain in Saxony and Gera-Roschuetz in Thuringia.
