Australia scraps 2008 analogue TV switch-off

July 17th, 2006 · No Comments

Australia has scrapped tentative plans to switch-off its analogue TV transmissions in 2008, confessing the date was unrealistic, because of ‘insufficient digital take-up’.
It says it now intends to switch-over between 2010 and 2012. Communications and IT Minister Helen Coonan added that the Federal Government would also open up two reserved digital channels for new services such as mobile digital television as well as encourage the introduction of new HDTV services.
