Digital broadcasting

CTU recommendation before buying a new television receiver

The Czech Republic is currently preparing itself to switch terrestrial digital television broadcasting from the present DVB-T system to the more frequency-effective DVB-T2 system. The new system will allow viewers to receive high definition channels, further broaden the range of channels on offer and at the same time release part of the radio frequencies for further development of mobile electronic communication networks used for high-speed Internet access.

In this regard, CTU draws the general public attention, when buying a new television receiver, to pay more attention to the technical parameters of the new receiver. The use of a modern system of encryption marked as H.265 or HEVC is expected for DVB-T2 terrestrial digital television broadcasting in the Czech Republic.

When buying a receiver for reception via cable television, CTU recommends you to ask your cable television network operator for information.
