Vodafone-Ziggo moves forward with digital switchover

Dutch Vodafone-Liberty Global joint venture VodafoneZiggo is to move forwards with plans to complete digital switchover in its cable footprint by switching off analogue TV signals in The Hague on the night of March 11-12.

VodafoneZiggo began the process of transitioning its networks to digital-only services in March last year, and has completed the process in the Capelle aan den IJssel regions, Flevoland, Rotterdam and surroundings, and Amsterdam and surroundings.

In addition to The Hague itself, the current phase of the project covers the surrounding municipalities of Zoetermeer, Delft, Rijswijk ZH, Voorburg, Leidschendam, Wassenaar and Nootdorp.

The migration to digital means that VodafoneZiggo cable customers will receive extra channels, including all regional channels and Ziggo Sport, the group’s premium sports offering. Subscription costs will remain the same as for the analogue service.

VodafoneZiggo said that the vast majority of its customers in the affected regions had already made the switch from analogue to digital.
