Analogue switch off plan delayed

The timetable for analogue switch-off in the regional capitals has been delayed. The process expected to begin in early March, is now expected to begin in April. The result of this is that the switch-off of analogue terrestrial services in the regional capitals will be completed by early autumn instead of June as originally planned.
This change to the switch off date will affect the planned launch of Austria’s second multiplex, which is now expected to start by the end of 2007, rather than the summer of 2007 as previously announced.
Candidates for the new multiplex include regional services, TW1 and Pulse TV.
Over 45,000 set-top boxes have been sold since the launch of DTT services in October 2006.
