$21 voucher for Thai digi-viewers

Thailand’s National Broadcasting & Telecoms Commission (NBTC) has set the value of its ‘free’ voucher to help subsidise the costs of digital conversion at $21.65 per household (690 Thai Baht).

The scheme has to be approved by the new government’s National Council for Peace & Order which is meeting tomorrow (July 30) and – if approved – the NBTC will start distributing vouchers in September.

The NBTC plan is to subsidise the cost of converter boxes (or as a discount from new digital TV sets) at a cost to the nation of $495 million and in order to see the whole country convert to digital transmission within two years.
