DTT forging ahead
DTT in Spain is ahead of all forecasts according to recent reports from Spain. In a web update from Advanced-Television.com it is reported that around one million homes are already watching the 18 DTT channels made available by the RTVE-led consortium.
The Consultancy, Corporacion Multimedia is saying that the penetration rate for DTT is now 4.7% only two months after the re-launch of DTT in Spain.
ASIMELEC, the Spanish Electronic Companies Association had estimated that only 850,000 homes would have access to DTT by the end of the year and this figure has been clearly exceeded. The estimate was also set for 2 million by the end of 2006 and on present trends this is also likely to be exceeded.
