MiniDig TV launched

MinDig TV, the subscription-free digital terrestrial television service was launched on December 1, 2008 at 17:30 with Duna TV HD in HD and Duna II AutonĂ³mia in SD format
The services are coded in MPEG-4, H.264 AVC and require an HD compatible DVB-T STB or receiver to view all the transmissions. Services are available to 60% of the population.
Negotiations are still underway for the inclusion of commercial broadcasters but the need for a revised broadcast legislative framework is said to be complicating the process.
