Analogue Switch Off Steering Group formed
The New Zealand government has established an Analogue Switch Off (ASO) steering group to manage the country’s transition to digital broadcasting.
The group is led by Ana Verboeket and includes representatives from Kordia, Sky TV, Television New Zealand and the government ministries for Culture and Heritage, Consumer Affairs and Economic Development.
The steering group will manage public information programmes and the take up of digital television services, as well as ensuring that the technical aspects of the analogue switchover process are coordinated correctly.
