DNA offers free to view HD DTT channels for December

DNA is to offer HD channels MTVNHD and Animal Planet free of charge on its digital-terrestrial TV platform during the month of December reports Digital TV Europe.
The channels will broadcast using the current DVB-T standard and can be reached by over one million people in the VHF transmitters’ coverage area.
From January, the HD broadcasts will switch to the new DVB-T2 standard and will be encrypted. Viewers will then require compatible equipment including a DVB-T2 tuner and a DNA smartcard or CI Plus module.
DNA also said its DTT network would be extended to cover municipalities in the Helsinki metropolitan area, eastern Uusimaa and the Turku district in December.
