Argentina expected to follow Brazil’s choice of a DTT system

In an article in La Prensa about the forthcoming DTT system choice in Brazil and Argentina it is reported that Argentina is likely to adopt the same system as Brazil. It reports that in November the Secretariat of Communication of the Public Work Ministry of Argentina decided to adopt the same pattern of digital TV as Brazil. This is despite an earlier decision to adopt the US ATSC system back in 1998 a system which is already discounted by Brazil. The article says that a system choice from Brazil is likely in February although other sources opt for trials in June and a full launch in September.
