Hong Kong DTV services to expand

July 8, 2008

The second phase of digital terrestrial television services will be launched in early August involving six additional transmission stations, bringing service coverage to 75 per cent of the Hong Kong population, in time for 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The Office of the Telecommunications Authority said the additional transmitting stations will help extend digital TV service coverage to Hong Kong South, Happy Valley, New Territories North, Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, Tsuen Wan, Kwai Chung, Tseung Kwan O and Sai Kung.

A recent survey found 6,300 of 10,000 buildings will have their communal aerial broadcast distribution systems upgraded to receive digital TV signals by early August
