Hungary’s digital switchover begins this week

Hungary is due to start its initial phase of digital switchover this week, with analogue terrestrial TV transmissions to cease in central parts of the country on July 31. 

Transmission services provider Antenna Hungária said that it will launch six digital broadcasting repeater sites on August 1, offering 31 TV channels to the affected regions – which include Central Transdanubia, Budapest and Pest County and the Southern Great Plain.

The second phase of Hungary’s two-part digital switchover is scheduled to take place on October 31.
