Analogue Switch over completed
Danmarks radio has switched off its remaining analogue TV transmitters and now has a fully digital service. The change took place late on the 31st October and the early hours of the 1st November.
In the freed spectrum Danmarks radio now operates two multiplexes.
On the first it transmits the national channels DR1, DR2 and the semi public TV2. In addition a number of local and regional services are also broadcast, all on an MPEG-2 coded multiplex.
The second multiplex is coded using MPEG-4, H.264 and is used for HD and SD broadcasts.
Three new channels have been launched on the second multiplex, DR HD, kids channel Ramasjang and culture channel DR K. New channels DR update and the Parliamentary channel Folketinget have also begun broadcasting on the new DTT multiplexes.
