DTG launches new way to get digital TV

The Digital TV Group has launched a new way to get digital TV for homes in the UK who have not yet 'gone digital.' Freeview offers more than 30 TV channels, together with interactivity and a number of digital radio channels – all available without a subscription.

The DTT platform can be received on existing TV sets using roof-top TV aerials and an adapter box or alternatively with a new integrated digital TV set.

Freeview launched after significant improvements were made to the quality and reliability of the digital terrestrial television signal. These changes included doubling power at many transmitters and changing the transmission mode of the digital terrestrial signal. Doing this increased the number of households able to receive digital terrestrial television and reduced the number of households affected by interference, according to Andy Duncan, Director, Marketing and Communications, BBC.
