What Changes On October 15, 2021 For Italian Tv? The Switch Off At Dvb-T2 Starts

1 Mins read

The postponement of the switch off to DVB-T2 has moved to 15 October 2021 a deadline originally scheduled for 1 September 2021. However, the date is approaching and it is time to understand what will change for TV in just over 40 days.

The new implementing decree of the Ministry of Economic Development provides that on October 15 the disposal of MPEG-2 in favour of MPEG-4 on DVB-T2 standards will begin.

From that date, broadcasters will be able to transmit with the new encoding “a number of representative programs,” and the feeling is that they will go by scattered order and that not all networks will align. The Ministry in fact underlines that “the initiatives relative to the disposal of the DVBT/MPEG-2 encoding will be gradually communicated to the users” but the sure thing is that the complete substitution of the MPEG-2 encoding in favor of the MPEG-4 will happen

So what do we do?

Our advice is to check right now if your TV is able to hook up the transmissions, connecting to any channel that already transmits in HD: this is the case of 501, 502 or 503. If you can access the broadcasts without any problems, the TV is compatible. Alternatively, you will need to replace or purchase a new decoder.
