The 700 band refarming process continues in Italy, as part of the DVB-T2ed switch off and implemented the roadmap provided by the Ministry of Economic Development. From now on, the release of frequencies in two other Italian regions.
These are some provinces of Emilia Romagna and Lombardy, where in some municipalities the modification is already underway.
There are several municipalities involved in the two regions, where it is required to re-intonise TV and decoder to hook up the new frequencies.
The roadmap drawn up by the Ministry of Economic Development provides that from 3 January to 9 March 2022 the frequencies of Valle D’Aosta, Piemonte, Lombardia (except the province of Mantua), and the provinces of Piacenza, Trento and Bolzano will change From February 9, 2022 to March 14, 2022 instead will be the turn of Veneto, the province of Mantova, Friuli Venezia-Giulia and the rest of Emilia Romagna.
The 700 band release for terrestrial digital is also central in view of the implementation of 5G, as it will allow telephone operators to make the most of it, while broadcasters will use the 700 Mhz subband.
As in other circumstances, we recommend that you tune channels (here you find the guide on how to tune channels to digital terrestrial) and, if possible, activate automatic search in the background, so that you don’t find yourself unprepared and therefore avoid In most cases this process is done automatically by default.
