VodafoneZiggo to switch off analogue in Amsterdam

VodafoneZiggo, Liberty Global and Vodafone’s joint venture in the Netherlands, will switch off analogue cable in Amsterdam on the night of December 10-11.

The analogue switch-off in the city is part of a phased switchover that started in march this year. The operator has already turned off analogue in Capelle aan den Ijssel and Rotterdam.

Ziggo said that it would inform customers well in advance of the changeover.

Analogue subscribers switching to digital will be able to view extra channels including regional services and Ziggo Sport. The operator said that the switch would have no impact on prices paid by its customers, with customers able to retain their existing subscriptions.

Jeroen Hoencamp, CEO of VodafoneZiggo, said that the number of people watching analogue had “decreased considerably” in recent years.
