The transition from over-the-air analog to digital TV is just beginning and the Bureau Telecommunicatie en Post (BT&P) is supervising this important transition. This transition has already taken place worldwide, especially in the United States, Europe and Asia. Our region will follow and is now preparing for the migration.
The concept of digital television has multiple advantages:
- better signal reception for the viewer, this signal can also be received by portable receivers
- better quality and resolution, with the possibility for High Definition Television (HDTV)
- efficient use of the frequency spectrum, as more channels can be transmitted at the same frequencies
