DTT coverage reaches 88% of the population

Following the launch of a further 55 new DTT transmitter sites in July, coverage has increased to 88% of the French population. The new sites were selected in regions which were underserved by DTT signals and has increased the coverage from 1.5% to 14.5%.
A figure of 91% coverage within a department has to be reached before the analogue service can be switched off.
