Poland’s Ministry of Transport has prepared a working document that says the transition to digital broadcasting could begin at the beginning of June next year. Simulcasting would then go on for 12 months, with all analogue transmitters being switched off in mid-2009. It is reported that the document has been produced jointly with the country’s two principal regulators – the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) and Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) – and will be passed to ministers for consideration within the next month. Poland would ideally like to make the switch to digital broadcasting before Euro 2012, which it will jointly host with Ukraine. The biggest stumbling block appears to be the provision of digital reception equipment to poorer parts of the population. Around 30% of viewers still watch only analogue terrestrial TV services.
