Analogue Switch Off pilot in 2008
An analogue switch-off pilot in the province of Soria, in the region of Castilla y Leon, has been confirmed. The pilot will take place in 2008, making Soria the first province in the country to completely migrate to digital TV.
The project will be divided into three separate phases. In the first phase, viewers will be given access to the digital technology; in the second phase, the new content will be developed for the digital platform; and finally during the third phase analogue services will be switched off, with digital coverage in 100% of households. Analogue switch-off is set to take place nationwide in April 2010.
