The transition to digital broadcasting is firmly on track in the Czech Republic, with 95% of the population now able to receive digital TV signals.
The figure was given by Rostislav Stary, the spokesman for National Coordination Group for Digital Broadcasting, and quoted in HN.
Zdenek Duspiva, chairman of the group, added that the Czech Republic should now have no problems in meeting its ASO target date of November 11, 2011.
There are currently four multiplexes operating in the country, with the first, allocated to public TV and radio channels and operated by the national transmission company CRa, being the only one that reaches 95% of the population.
The second, also operated by CRa, covers 65% and the third, operated by the Czech Digital Group (CDG), 55%.
The fourth, operated by Telefónica O2, is only available in Prague, Brno and Ostrava and reaches 26.6% of the population.
