    More than 50% of European households pick their primary

    TV signal from Terrestrial Broadcasting Networks

    Kitchen-TVs, Bedroom-TVs, Second Homes, Caravans

    etc add another significant share of households having at

    least one TV-set on Terrestrial

    Spain, Italy, Greece 100%, France 85%, UK 75%

    DTT is the fastest growing and major platform offering

    both Free-to-Air Public Service and Commercial TV, as

    well as popular pay-TV channels

    Terrestrial is simple to use and install, reliable and

    universally available for European consumers

    DTT is the platform of choice by consumers

    Demand for linear TV is growing quite the reverse of common

    myths

    Development of Terrestrial Broadcasting is spectacular and

    represents innovative technology - from carrying just a few analogue

    channels per country to more than 50 digital channels including

    HDTV and 3DTV

    DTT will cover 95% - 99,8% of households in most European

    countries after Digital Switch Over

    More than 750 TV channels are distributed by DTT in Europe today

    About 200 Million DTT enabled receivers have been sold

    in Europe

    Spectacular growth

  • 8

    DTT is cost efficient and uses spectrum for distribution of linear

    TV more efficiently than any other terrestrial wireless technology.

    The analog-to-digital switchover has created the 800 MHz digital

    dividend and has created new business opportunities both for

    broadcasters, content providers, pay-TV operators and telecom

    operators

    Consumers and the Broadcasting Industry are now making

    substantial efforts and investments in making the 800 MHz band

    available for other services than TV

    Digital Terrestrial drives platform competition and content

    creation

    Wireless Microphones, Public Safety, Air Traffic, Maritime Systems,

    Satellites, Radar, Radio Links, Wi-Fi, White Space Devices,

    Meteorology, Medicine, Navigation, Astronomy ..... and Defence

    The European Commission has proposed a common European Radio

    Spectrum Policy (RSPP) and an inventory of spectrum use from 300

    MHz and upwards

    Much focus is on Mobile Broadband and Terrestrial TV Broadcasting

    Many services call for spectrum in the

    300 MHz to 6 GHz range

    After refarming of the 800 MHz band DTT will use all remaining

    spectrum in the UHF band

    UHF band is optimal for DTT coverage and efficiency. To this end

    LTE will never be used to deliver TV to large screens

    One single DTT site can cover 10 million+ people and a large area

    Increasing demand for wider choice, more channels, HDTV and 3DTV

    drives requirements on capacity and efficient use of spectrum

    DTT can co-exist with Wireless Microphones

    DTT may be able to co-exist with White Space Devices

    Interference from mobile broadband in 800 MHz is a real issue and

    consumers must be protected from loosing their TV reception

    The multi capable digital terrestrial network

    Doing more with less

    Attractive, competitive and simple to use

    Consumers choice Much is Free-to-Air

    Universal coverage, fixed and mobile reception

    Serves primary TVs, kitchen TVs, bedroom TVs,

    second homes, caravans, cars, boats, mobiles ..

    DVB-T / MPEG 2 is currently used in several countries

    For new services DVB-T2 / MPEG4 is introduced

    gracefully rather than asking for more spectrum

    HDTV and 3DTV already on air

    Over the top, Hybrid solutions, Connected-TV,

    Push-TV, Advanced Recording Services ...

    DTT in Europe serves 275 million people

    and provides 750+ TV channels.

    Around 200 million DTT enabled receivers

    have been sold to date.
