Analogue and digital TV simulcasts are due to being in Serbia on September 1st, according to the country’s Ministry of Trade and Telecommunications.
The first analogue transmitters will be switched off on March 1st 2015, and Serbia should complete its transition to DTT by mid-2015.
The Regulations on the Transition from Analogue to Digital Television Broadcasting and Access to the Multiplex, published in the Official Gazette, list the TV frequency channels per zone of distribution for the first, second and third multiplexes; the modality of access to the multiplexes, as well as the further development of the Initial Network for testing the DTT signal.
The Regulations also define that at least 95 per cent of the population in the first multiplex must be covered with a digital TV signal, while a minimum of 90 per cent of the population by the second and third multiplexes.
