Georgia switches to digital broadcasting


Georgia has switched to digital broadcasting starting today. Previously used analog broadcasting was terminated at 10:00 today in Tbilisi’s broadcasting zone, which unites Tbilisi, Sagarejo region, Kojori, Rustavi and Marneuli.

The same will take place in the regions in about 8-9 weeks. The switchover applies to the part of the population that receives broadcasting by means of an antenna placed on a roof and their TV-sets have no DVB-T2 standard support. These people will need a special device named set-top box to receive the signal.

Within the framework of the 2006 Geneva Agreement (GE-06), switchover to digital terrestrial TV broadcasting represents an international obligation of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) member states, including Georgia. 

Transparency International published a research based on which 90% of the population was well-informed about the reform and that the 33% already uses installed antennas.
