Spain updates its Digital Terrestrial Television system

This Wednesday, February 14, Spain updates its Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) system, leaving programs that are not compatible with the new standards off the grid

Innovation in Digital Terrestrial Television in Spain advances this Wednesday, February 14, throughout the system, leaving programs from channels with standard quality (SD) out of coverage in homes.

The implementation of this change means that in the country’s homes, people will only have access to high definition (HD) channels on their TV sets.

In popular slang, they refer to the “blackout” of Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), which is nothing more than an adjustment announced and known to citizens regarding the transmission of content on television.

Given the news, some experts or experts on alternatives have already come forward to avoid, for example, having to purchase a new television. In this sense, they state that users can “connect an external decoder for DTT in HD with a scart connector or via HDMI.”

However, they will need an adapted DTT antenna at home or in the neighborhood community. Knowing the decoder option has skyrocketed the demand for these devices, as highlighted by the product price comparator, according to which the search for the product has tripled, reaching 258 % more in recent weeks.

Currently, Spaniards are looking for ways to confront the high prices of the technology market, so it is understandable that they seek to extend the useful life and optimize the performance of their televisions by adapting the aforementioned decoder.
