Welcome to the digital era!

Timetable

 


 From the analogue to digital era!

After the successful completion of the tendering process by the Hellenic Telecommunication and Post Commission's [E.E.T.T. in Greek], on February 7, 2014 we were granted all frequency spectrum usage rights of national and regional coverage, with the objective of developing the digital terrestrial television network of Greece. In other words, with this decision we became the official network provider through which the privately-owned nationwide and regional television stations broadcast their signal.

The switch-off dates as well as the sequence of regions where the digital signal was to be activated had been defined by the corresponding Ministries [Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport & Networks and the Minister of State].

According to the Joint Ministerial Decision 30150/901/Φ.111Α/16-5-2014, G.G. 1338/Β’/27-5-2014 [amending J.M.D’s. 23953/724/Φ.110Α/15-4-2014, G.G. 1045/B’/28-4-2014, 41167/1375/Φ.111Α/22-8-2013, G.G. 2064/B’/23-8-2013 and 46157/1815/Φ.150/16-9-2013, G.G. 2421/B’/27-9-2013], the digital switchover timetable was determined. In essence, this defined the grouping of areas, the order and the date they were to gain digital terrestrial television signal coverage.
