Chile to decide on DTT system in August

Recent reports in the Argentine press say that the Chilean government has announced that the regulations relating to the terrestrial digital TV system, to be adopted by Chile, will be sent to the National Congress in August.
The decision on whether to adopt the US ATSC system, the Japanese ISDB-T system or the DVB-T system as the standard for DTT in Chile has been delayed several times before.
In the past Pablo Belo, the Undersecretary of Telecommunications has remarked that none of the three competing systems is categorically better than another, a view that might be making a decision more difficult.
