According to the national transmission company Antenna Hungária, it will take place in the central parts of the country – North and Central Transdanubia, Budapest, and Pest Country and the Greater Southern Plain – and the company DTT service MinDig TV, which will replace analogue transmissions, is already available there to the entire population (98%).
Antenna Hungária adds that it will launch digital transmissions from six new sites at the beginning of August.
The company has invested a total of HUF25 billion (€84.6 million) in the rollout of digital TV and radio networks and the introduction of services.
Its subscription-free MinDig TV service is received in over 350,000 homes, while the sister MinDig TV Extra now has over 100,000 customers.
The second phase of Hungary’s analogue switch off will take place on October 31, after which the Family package of MinDigTV Extra will be made widely available, programme line-up expanded and new services integrated into the product portfolio.
