Portugal resumes DTT migration on 12 August

Tuesday 21 July 2020 | 12:55 CET | News
DTT network migration in Portugal, which had been suspended due to the pandemic crisis, will resume on 12 August and not on 03 August as Meo had originally proposed. The network operator informed regulator Anacom of the need to change the timetable as one of its suppliers was unavailable to provide re-tuning services to broadcasters in the field, because of the Covid-19 emergency. The work is now scheduled for completion on 18 December, one week after the date on the previously approved schedule.
