St Petersburg begins DVB-T2 broadcasts

Russia’s second city St Petersburg is launching test broadcasts using the DVB-T2 standard today. 

St Petersburg will test the new standard via broadcasts on Channel 35 of its digital multiplex. Guidelines for receiving DVB-T2 signals will be published on the website of state broadast services provider RTRS.

Russia has already launched DVB-T2 services in the Republic of Tatarstan. The country plans to migrate all digital services to the new standard ahead of switchover in 2015.
