More than 100 countries committed to DVB-T

The DVB Project has completed the ITU's Regional Radiocommunication Conference (RRC-06) and said it has the support of 100 countries, including all European, African and Middle Eastern nations.

The participating countries from Europe, Africa and the Middle East have agreed to a new frequency plan for bands three, four and five, replacing the Stockholm '61 agreements. Digital terrestrial television in these regions will thus be based solely on DVB-T.

The conference was working to create a frequency plan and associated coordination agreements for an all-digital environment based exclusively on DVB-T. This now brings the number of countries that have launched (or will soon) DVB-T services to at least 114.
