DNA’s HDTV network powered by DVB-T2 will cover the Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Turku, Lahti, Hämeenlinna and Tampere regions by the end of 2010 and then extended to Pori, Kotka, Lappeenranta, Kouvola, Kokkola, Vaasa, Seinäjoki, Jyväskylä, Mikkeli and Savonlinna during 2011. By then the service will cover 1.5 million TV homes which is 60% of all those in Finland.
The antenna network, supplied by Ericsson, will be built on DNA’s mobile networks base stations. In September, the Finnish government amended DNA’s DTT licence to enable it to offer standard-definition content as well as HDTV.
