Television Nacional Uruguay (TNU), the nation’s main public network, has started trialling an HDTV service on its digital terrestrial TV system. The service is expected to go ‘live’ about a month from now in mid-August.
The country’s Industry Minister, Roberto Kreimerman, said TNU’s signals will also be available on the nation’s mobile phone systems for those with the ‘OneSeg’ ISDB-T tuner fitted.
The Minister added that Uruguay is on schedule to switch off its analogue transmissions by 2015.
