Telia Lietuva plans to stop providing DTT services in Lithuania in stages starting from the beginning of next month.
According to the company, the number of DTT subscribers has been continuously going down in the last two years.
Furthermore, following the introduction of IPTV over LTE last month it has been possible to offer IPTV over LTE as a substitute for DTT to customers who do not have access to the internet via cable (FTTH or DSL) to receive IPTV services.
Telia Lietuva currently has 27,000 DTT customers compared to 220,000 receiving its IPTV offer.
The company operates a network of DVB-T transmitters in order to rebroadcast encrypted, mainly international channels as well as FTA national channels.
FTA channels will continue to be broadcast in Lithuania.
