DTT Broadcasters want quick Analogue Switch Over

French TV channels TF1, France 2, France 3, Canal Plus, France 5, Arte France and M6 have released a joint statement putting pressure on the French government to speed up the country’s analogue switchoff.
The channels said the process must be completed as quickly as possible so that free-to-air HD services can be launched on the DTT platform. They said simulcasting analogue and digital channels during the switchover process wasn’t desirable because it would be too costly and delay the development of digital signals.
