Digital terrestrial television is a success in Austria, with 400,000 receivers in the market at the end of last year. “DTT has tuned into a competing platform,” according to Michael Wagenhofer, MD of Digitales Fernsehen Förder, GmbH, the company responsible for the switch-over. “About 70% of these people can now also receive three additional channels.” The figure applies only to dedicated set-top boxes, not to integrated digital TV sets, USB sticks and portable DTT devices. About one third of all STBs sold is capable of receiving MHP. Digital switch-over is in full swing, with more regions now becoming all digital.
