In July 2003 regular DVB-T transmissions started with one multiplex in the Antwerp region. In May 2004 the DVB-T network was extended to cover the whole area of Flanders with one multiplex for outdoor reception. In some large towns portable indoor reception is now possible. Coverage in Flanders is reported to be 100% as of May 2005.
An analogue switch-off date of 2010 might now be realistic.
In the French Community two DVB-T transmitters in the Brussels area are in operation. The plan is to extend the network to the whole of the French Community by the end of 2007.
