ASO progresses in France
Analogue Switch-Off (ASO) has been completed in the the Pays de la Loire region in the north western part of France.
DTT services from the four main transmission sites (Nantes, Laval, Le Mans, Angers) were available to viewers by 10am on the 18 May and to viewers relying on the 27 relay sites by 7.40pm on the same day.
To help viewers prepare for analogue switch-off, all households in the region (1.2 million) were sent a 20 page guide by France Télé Numérique in mid-March.
Brittany will be the next region to switch-off analogue terrestrial services on 8 June.
