What are the drivers for DVB-T2 adoption in the United Kingdom?

14/08/19

DVB-T2 is already widely adopted in the UK and is radiated from all DTT main station and relay transmitters. DVB-T2 is used to carry HD H.264 content, and the motivation for buying a DVB-T2 capable receiver is the ability to receive HD content.

The HD channels that are currently available are described on the Freeview website here:- http://www.freeview.co.uk/what-we-offer/freeview-hd

Five more HD channels will be launching soon (using DVB-T2), with test transmissions already happening in London. The news of this new HD launch is here:- http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2013/bbchdchannels.html
