Singapore households to make switch to digital TV
Come Sep 17, Singapore households which have not made the switch to digital TV (DTV) will see a smaller picture on their TV screens, as a visual reminder for them to make the switch before analogue TV signals are switched off on Dec 31.
On top of that, there will be on-screen instructions to inform viewers how to make the switch to DTV. Accordingly to Mediacorp’s survey on DTV adoption in Singapore, about four in five Singapore households are already enjoying DTV.
This includes households that enjoy DTV through their PayTV subscriptions. Households that do not switch to DTV by Dec 31 will not be able to continue to watch Mediacorp free-to-air programmes from Jan 1 next year.
