500,000 DVB-T Receivers Sold in France


Just three months after the launch of digital terrestrial television services in France, the company managing the platform has announced, over half a million receivers have been sold, with that number expected to double by the end of December.

According to www.tnt-gratuite.fr, a website aimed at informing the French public about the free-for-all service available, signals will be available to 50% of the population by September 2005 with 65% to be reached in the first quarter of next year. By the end of 2007 the whole country should be covered. Further information regarding DTT in France and elsewhere is available in the DVB Worldwide section of this site.
