According to an Antenna Hungaria report on the recent Digital Switchover Conference, Hungary is already on the right track for Digital Terrestrial TV.
Just over two months since the launch of DTT services the number of receiving equipments launched reached over 55,000 (end August 2009).
Already 1.5% of Hungarian households are MiniDig TV ready and most of them with an HD screen, according to conference participants.
Coverage is expected to reach 88% of the population by the end of the year and the government is also considering making amendments to the media legislation to come into effect during the first half of 2010.
