Mogilev has started operational testing of a digital broadcasting transmitter, Interfax learnt from director of the regional radio and television network Nikolai Miranovich.
In his words, Mogilev will be among the first Belarusian cities to get digital TV (8 channels). The transmitter is expected to be commissioned in early January 2008.
In future digital television with better quality and lower costs is expected to fully replace the existing analogous TV networks.
To receive digital television signals, viewers need to install DVB-T tuners on their TV-sets. Such devices are manufactured by many producers of television equipment, including Gorizont and Vityaz.
