ZDF confirms plans for DVB-T2 HD broadcasts

Tuesday 22 March 2016 | 19:48 CET | News
German state broadcaster ZDF has approved the migration of its terrestrial broadcasts from DVB-T to DVB-T2 HD. This will allow ZDF to offer all programmes from all channels - ZDF HD, ZDFneo HD, ZDFinfo HD, 3sat HD and KiKA HD - for free to customers in HD. It will launch DVB-T2 broadcasts of ZDF HD in selected metropolitan areas in May, with a full channel line-up in these areas from spring 2017, followed by a phased national roll-out by mid-2019.
