Analogue switch-off date confirmed

Following the approval of a draft amendment to the Broadcasting Act, the analogue switch-off date has now been confirmed as June 2010 and not February 2010 as previously reported.
Estimates indicate that 200,000 households rely on the terrestrial platform for their primary television reception.
A switchover pilot programme on the island of Ruhnu was also completed on the 31st of March and now viewers only receive their terrestrial programmes via the digital platform.
