Italy to introduce DVB-T2 in 2015
Following the launch of DVB-T2 by commercial broadcaster Europa 7 in 2010, the Italian government has now decided that all all DTT tuners sold in Italy from 2015 onwards must include the DVB-T2 standard, both for stand-alone set tops and for IDTVs. For consumers, there will be a need to buy new tuners, although a number of DVB-T channels will remain on air for some time.
