Poland gears up for next stage of digital switchover

The next phase of digital switchover in Poland is due to take place on May 20, when analogue transmitters in Krakow and a host of other cities are due to be turned off, according to Polish terrestrial broadcast infrastructure operator Emitel. 

In line with a schedule outlined by Poland’s Office of Electronic Communications, the switchoff this month will also apply to transmitters in Bialogard, Bydgoszcz, Kalisz, Katowice, Konin, Koszalin, Lauenburg, Boats, Pile, Slupsk and Swinoujscie.

The Polish digital switchover began last year and is due to conclude later in 2013.
