The transition from DVB-T to DVB-T2/HEVC in Croatia will start on October 27th and last until November 12th.
The information has been announced by DTT network operator Odasiljaci i Veze (OiV) which has also published a timetable for the switchover for the country’s nine digital regions.
The DVB-T2/HEVC signal will cover 97 per cent of the Croatian population.
In March, national telecommunications sector regulator Hakom postponed the switchover due to measures to combat the coronavirus epidemic.
After the transition to DVB-T2 is completed, national multiplex M1 will distribute the HRT 1 HD, HRT 2 HD, RTL HD, Nova TV HD, HRT 3 HD, HRT 4 HD, RTL 2 HD and Doma TV HD channels.
RTL Kockica HD, CMC HD, Sportska Televizija HD and existing regional TV channels will be available on national multiplex M2, while the regional L1 multiplex will carry local and regional DTT channels.
