Eric Besson, the French minister of industry, announced during the New Year’s reception of the National Frequency Agency (ANFR) his willingness to move quickly to MPEG-4 and introduce DVB-T2 for digital terrestrial television, reports Broadband TV News.
He went on to say that All French analogue broadcasts will be terminated and the new Digital Dividend frequencies might be allocated to mobile internet operators as early as November this year.
At the moment, all free-to-air DTT channels are available in DVB-T/MPEG-2, while all HD and premium channels use DVB-T/MPEG-4.
