TV Signal (Holland)


From today on TV antennas will no longer pick up the public stations. People will need to purchase a decoder to be able to watch TV. This is the result of going from analog to digital.

The public broadcast stations have been sending signals via analog through the air since 1951.

74,000 families still watch TV this way and others use this in their vacation homes. This change involves 222,000 people in total. The Netherlands is the first country in Europe to switch to digital signals and by doing this they will save millions of euros per year. (

  1. Spain is about to change to Digital, too. Changes are being made in aerials to that effect, and a decoder must be used to pick the signal. Apparently the image will be clearer this way.
