DTT coverage to reach 85%
Digital terrestrial coverage in Norway will be available to 85% of the country when the latest wave of transmitters goes live in early November.
Transmitters serving Sør-Trøndelag, in the centre of the country, went ‘on air’ on November 1st, followed by Sogn og Fjordane on the 5th, and the areas of Hedmark and Oppland on November 8th.
The remaining 15% of the population will have to wait another 12 months before DTT is made available to them.
The DTT platform provides a mixture of free-to-air and pay-DTT services.
RiksTV, the pay-DTT service provider reportedly has 20,000 subscribers since its launch in September
Analogue switch off will commence in March 2008.
