Many devices owned by Italians are not compatible with the new digital terrestrial devices. But there is not much time.
Everything is ready to move into the new digital land. actually no. In fact, not everyone is ready and the race for the DVBT-2 is far from far ahead. However, there is not much missing: by next year, that is 20 June 2022, the goal is to make the required transition, improve TV performance standards and ensure wider access to TV viewing. The problem arose when this was recognized The new system was not compatible with many Italian TVs. Or rather, which are found in the homes of Italians. Also for this reason, a TV purchase bonus has been provided, which is useful if you do not have a DVBT-2 compatible device.
But this is not enough at the moment. According to polls, in fact, it seems that those who needed to update their devices were left behind. In fact, according to Advanced Television, “about 49.6% of DTT families, or 11.8 million, are equipped to receive DVB-T2 broadcasts.” Total received by TV on this platformIn fact, it is 23.7 million. The remaining 2.3 million families run other platforms (1.57 million, including some that have TVs without a terrestrial receiving antenna). Finally, about 700,000 households do not have a television.
Digital ground, little time to get to the point: put the Italians
Essentially, in the remaining twelve months, more than half of the sample examined will have to switch to the new digital land. Definitely not a walk in the park, because it’s not just a matter of owning a new device But also for the literacy process From a technological point of view. In some cases, in fact, buying a new TV requires the use of systems that were not required with old TVs, especially in terms of smart functions. In this sense, Italy seems to be lagging behind other European countries.
In any case, whether it is ready or not, the switch to the new digital land should take place within the next year. Always, of course, according to the parentheses that the closure program envisions. Which, for some Italian regions, will see a deadline fairly soon. It will start with the first window from September 1 to December 31, 2021 for Zones 2 and 3, Which will include the northern regions: Valle d’Aosta, Piedmont, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, and the provinces of Trento and Bolzano. From January 1 to March 31, 2022, the role of Region 1 will be: Liguria, Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Campania, and Sardinia. It will close with the slide From 1 April to 20 June 2022: Sicily, Calabria, Puglia, Basilicata, Abruzzo, Molise and Marche. By then, everything should be ready: the devices and… the users.
