Shared antennas cause concern
The need for new antenna systems is the main problem limiting DTT progress in Spain according to Impulsa TDT’s president Eladio Gutiérrez.
Converting shared antenna distribution systems, which are common in Spain, is a challenge because not all neighbours are prepared to pay for it.
He went on to say that because of the seriousness of the problem, this could be an obstacle preventing Spain reaching its ASO goal of the 3rd April 2010.
The situation is certainly not all bad because 55% of TV homes have already gone digital, 67.3% of which are watching DTT.
