The year that is at the door promises to be very lively for the switch off to the new DVB-T2. In this case, already from next 3 January 2022 are previewed of the important modifications to the frequencies of the channels Rai 1, Rai 2, Rai 3 and Rai News 24.
This novelty will apply to Sardinia, where the process of refarming with the release of the 700 band is in the process of being concluded, which as known has been made available to telephone operators for 5G.
Users living in Sardinia already in the past hours at the end of the TGR have seen the commercial and the institutional sign appear in which it reads that “TV is changing throughout Europe. In Sardinia from next 3 January Rai 1, Rai 2, Rai 3, Rai News 24 will be broadcast on new frequencies. To continue to see them, all television sets and decoders will need to be re-tuned.”
The operations are expected to end on 10 January 2022 and include the migration of Mux 1 Rai, which includes the channels in question from the 5/7/9/11/45 VHF bands to the 37/43 UHF channels.
Those who do not live on the Italian island should not be affected by this migration, at least from 3 January 2022.
In January 2022 the restarting process of DVB-T2 will also start in other Italian regions.
