Furthermore, according to the company, it will begin the transition to the DVB-T2 transmission system from early 2020.
As part of the process, new receivers will be supplied to customers at the company’s expense and the service will have increased network coverage – effectively 99% of residential homes – and improved offerings including more HD channels from next autumn.
AH signed a contract with the regulator NMHH in September renewing the licences for its DTT services MinDig TV and MinDig TV Extra for a further 12 years, starting September 6, 2020.
It notes that there will be no change in transmission format for the free MinDig TV service, which will continue to use DVB-T MPEG-4 receivers.
Meanwhile, the linear OTT service mindiGO TV will be expanded with additional popular commercial channels, as well as new on-demand content and packages.
