Digital TV in Vietnam Grows
The Vietnam Television Technology Investment and Development Company (VTC) has received permission from the Government Office to provide DVB-T broadcast services nationwide.
VTC has piloted broadcasting local and international DVB-T programs for three years, but the green light from the government will now allow the station to broadcast to all 64 Vietnamese provinces and cities.
SCTV, which supplies Digital Video Broadcast-Cable (DVB-C) services, will also launch DVB-T services next month.
BTV in southern Vietnam has expanded its DVB-T coverage to select Mekong Delta provinces since early 2005. Currently its DVB-C services supply 24 channels, and the number could rise to 32.
HTV is also speeding up to launch DVB-C services in HC
