Delays to first ASO’s

The government has announced that 700 of the 1286 municipalities planned for ASO in the first phase in June do not meet the DTT coverage requirements.
The likely result is that 14 out of the 32 analogue switch off projects in the first phase are likely to be delayed. This affects all of the planned switchover projects in the regions of Galicia, Castilla y Leon, Andalucia, and the Basque country.
The criteria to be reached before ASO can take place, in an area, is that at least 81.3% of the affected population can access the DTT signal.
