DTT available to half the population
At the beginning of the year DTT could be received by just under half (46.77%) of people in Belarus, according to official statistics published by Cableman.
DTT was launched in the capital, Minsk, in July 2005 and currently offers five TV channels and one radio station. DTT services are also available in several other towns and cities including Grodo and Mogilev.
In the cable sector, the MMDS operation Kosmos TV is due to launch a commercial digital TV operation next month.
