Freeview on DTT soon!
Freeview New Zealand is promising to start its digital-terrestrial TV (DTT) service in April although a definitive date has not been given, reports Rapid TV News.
In September TVNZ announced that it would begin broadcasting HDTV transmissions from TV1 and TV2 on the DTT Freeview network by July 2008, in time for the Beijing Olympics in August.
At the moment the Freeview platform is only broadcast from satellite in standard definition.
The report goes on to say that transmission company Kordia has now completed the DTT network, which covers 75% of the population and is testing the system prior to launch.
Initially DTT broadcasting will be in urban areas only.
