The operator will modulate a DVB-T signal over its cable network to take advantage of the growing number of IDTVs with an inbuilt DTT tuner. As first reported in Broadband TV News, although the Swiss DTT offer is minimal, Naxoo faces competition from signals on the other side of the French border.
“In line with our goal of simplifying access to multimedia services to everyone, Naxoo is announcing the simulcast of analogue channels in the digital format. To do this we’re relying on the DVB-T technology, better known as TNT,” said Michel Mattacchini, chairman of Naxoo’s board of directors.
Naxoo will offer its subscribers a package of 40 channels including an EPG and in some cases dual language soundtracks.
Last Wednesday a relay of France 2 HD was also introduced, the first time the HD version of the French national channel has been available in Switzerland, one of three new channels on the network.
