Analogue switch off
Our customers have been at the forefront of analogue switch off across Europe. As analogue TV has been replaced by the digital version, so broadcasters have used digital satellite TV services to reach areas that cannot be economically serviced with terrestrial technologies. Germany moved from analogue to digital in April 2012, while the UK switched over fully in October 2012.
The same is happening with broadband so that remote communities can have the same access to the internet and digital services via satellite broadband.
