Taiwan NCC plans STB subsidy

February 24, 2010

Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC), in line with its policy to stop analogue terrestrial TV broadcasts in 2012, is drawing up a plan to subsidise the purchase of STBs.

The NCC has come out with two proposals: one calls for giving every household a free STB at a total budget of NT$10.5 billion ($328 million) while another suggests only making low-income households eligible at a total budget of NT$250 million, according to reports.
