THE countdown has begun to the change of terrestrial digital TV (TDT) frequency changes throughout Almeria.
The Sub-delegation of the Government has issued a reminder that some Spanish national and regional channels will stop broadcasting on their old frequencies on February 13 in the province’s 103 municipalities.
The Sub-delegation reported that 66 per cent of communal buildings in Almeria have carried out the necessary changes to enable residents to carry on enjoying the full TDT line-up from that that date onwards.
Under a royal decree issued last June subsidies are available to affected communities of owners of between €104.30 and €677.95 per buildings to help meet the costs of the necessary changes. Applications can be presented after the signal reception equipment has been adapted by a company registered on the Secretary of State for Telecommunications and Digital Infrastructure’s register for installers up until the end of September.
The statement also made the point that after February 13 anyone wishing to watch Spanish TV channels on TDT will have to retune their TV with the remote control.
For more information on the changes see the website or call 901 201 004 or 910 889 879.
