Dutch cable operator Ziggo will be switching off the analogue TV signal in Rotterdam, Hook of Holland and Rozenburg this September.
In the next two years, Ziggo’s customers, who are currently watching television by cable on an analogue basis, will be switching to digital cable television in phases by region.
After the regions Capelle on the IJssel and Flevoland, it is now the turn of Rotterdam and environs. The conversion will take place on the night of Tuesday 18 to Wednesday 19 September.
“Much has changed over the years in the TV sector. The image went from black and white to colour, the antenna disappeared from the roofs. Now we watch TV on mobile and tablet as well as on the television screen. We will continue to innovate in order to be ready for the future. The number of people still watching analogue TV has decreased considerably in recent years. The analogue TV signal will therefore stop and we will supply all our customers with digital cable TV, via the same cable,” said Jeroen Hoencamp, CEO of VodafoneZiggo.
