Digital switchover plan approved
The government of the French-speaking community in Belgium has approved the Strategic plan for Digital Switchover presented by the Minister of Culture.
The plan calls for analogue TV service to be switched off by November 2011.
Mobile and portable television are key objectives in the plan, providing something that the extensive existing cable services cannot.
The plan also favours the cable platform for the provision of fixed TV services and would like to ensure that the DVB-T signals can be received on portable TV’s and that a DVB-H service is launched in 2008.
HD services are unlikely to be made available on the DTT platform according to the plan.
