Peru Picks Japanese-Brazilian Terrestrial DTV System
As widely expected, Peru officially picked the Brazilian "SBTVD" terrestrial DTV standard. SBTVD is based on the Japanese ISDB-T COFDM format with improvements and modifications to better suit the Brazilian market. The Japanese have incorporated the changes in a version of the ISDB-T standard called "ISDB-T International."

While some stations are expected to begin DTV broadcasting next year, Peru does not plan to shut off analog TV until 2023.

Some in the Peru bureaucracy are happy to buy a few more houses - payment for this mess. Where corruption is so common, market logic has no real place. A new standard, just for Brazil and Peru... Consumers will be punished for decades with higher prices for TV's. Pathetic.
