No HD on Dutch digital terrestrial - 09-September-2009, 12:03

The Dutch digital terrestrial platform Digitenne will not launch HD broadcasts anytime in the near future, according to a company spokesperson quoted in local press reports.

During the past few years, Digitenne, a wholly owned subsidiary of incumbent telco KPN, has proved to be a formidable competitor to cable and DTH platform Canal Digitaal Satelliet, with 826,000 paying subscribers at the end of June 2009.

Digitenne currently broadcasts in MPEG-2 and, according to the spokesperson, does not want to force its customers to buy new receiving equipment. However, both cable and DTH platforms are now heavily investing in bringing HD channels for their customers.

KPN positions its DVB-T platform as a low cost alternative to cable and now claims about one quarter of the total digital TV market.
