This is one of the most important transmitters in the country, and with broadcasts also due to start from Krasov in West Bohemia today (June 27), 69.1% of viewers in the Czech Republic will be able to receive DVB-T2 signals.
The figure is expected to rise to 99% by Q1 2018, with the switch to DVB-T2 being completed in 2020.
Unlike most countries in CEE, terrestrial TV viewing remains very popular in the Czech Republic, with around 60% of households receiving DTT services, all of which are free.
DVB-T will continue alongside DVB-T2 until 2020, after which all viewers will require sets that support the DVB-T2/HEVC standard in order to receive DTT services.
The DVB-T service in the Czech Republic currently offers 14 channels and more will be added in due course.
