HÀ NỘI – Analog signals will be switched off in eight provinces - Bắc Ninh, Bình Dương, Hà Nam, Hải Dương, Hậu Giang, Hưng Yên, Vĩnh Long and Vĩnh Phúc - on December 30.
The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) sent an official announcement to the provincial People’s Committees asking them to ensure that residents are prepared for the change.
To spread the information, the People’s Committees have asked television and broadcasting stations and departments of information and communications to increase information on the digitalisation in the last two weeks of December.
Provinces are also asked to inform people about the supporting switchboard at 05111022.
By August this year, five cities and provinces switched off analog signals, including Hà Nội, HCM City, Cần Thơ, Đà Nẵng and Hải Phòng.
Lê Văn Tuấn, deputy director of the Authority of Radio Frequency Management under the MIC, said that the eight provinces were ready for the analog signal switch-off.
Speaking at the meeting, Minister of Information and Communications Trương Minh Tuấn asked departments to focus on STB support for poor and nearly-poor households in the eight provinces. He also asked the Authority of Radio Frequency Management to research plans on using bandwidths liberated after the television digitalisation. — VNS
