THIS month is time to retune to pick up Spanish TV.
The digital terrestrial television, or TDT, frequencies are changing in Almeria, meaning TVs will need to be re-tuned to pick up the Spanish channels.
The change is being implented in 42 municipalities on Wednesday September 18. These include Albanchez, Albox, Antas, Arboleas, Bedar, Cantoria, Cuevas del Almanzora, Chirivel, Los Gallardos, Garrucha, Huercal-Overa, Mojacar, Oria, Partaloa, Pulpi, Velez-Rubio, Vera and Zurgena.
The frequency change will happen in the remaining 61 municipalities on the last day of September.
The need to change the TDT frequencies is due to the so-called Second Digital Dividend. In accordance with an EU decision Spain has to free up the 700Mhz band spectrum to allow for the rolling out of 5G telecommunications.
An Economy and Business Ministry statement said this contributes towards “placing Spain among the leading countries in the development of this technology, which will boost the productivity of the business network and facilitate the appearance of groundbreaking technology-“
