NTC recommends DVB-T/H for Philippines

The Philippines is likely to adopt DVB-T/H as the standards for its digital migration according to a report in The Manila Times Internet edition.
The Times attributes the news to the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) which last week submitted a report to the government recommending the adoption of the standards.
NTC had previously set up a working group to investigate which DTT standard would be best for the Philippines.
The report recommends that the NTC should stop issuing new licences for analogue TV broadcasting by 2010 and plan for the introduction of DTT by 2015.
