DTT receivers top 400,000

Digital terrestrial television is a success in Austria, with 400,000 receivers in the market at the end of last year, reports Broadband TV News.
”DTT has turned into a competing platform,” according to Michael Wagenhofer, MD of Digitales Fernsehen Förder, GmbH, the company responsible for the switch-over. “About 70% of these people can also receive three additional channels.” The figure applies to dedicated set-top boxes only and not to integrated digital TV sets, USB sticks or portable DTT devices.
About one third of all STBs sold are capable of receiving MHP.
Digital switchover is in full swing, with more regions becoming all-digital.
