KPN converts Digitenne signal Gelderland, Overijssel and Flevoland to dvb-t2




On Tuesday, KPN converted the DVB-T signal for its Digitenne service in the provinces of Gelderland, Overijssel and Flevoland to DVB-T2. It is the second region in the Netherlands that switches KPN to the new transmission standard.

Converting region 2, where KPN subdues the provinces of Gelderland, Overijssel and Flevoland, went well during the night of Monday to Tuesday , a KPN employee reports : “This morning, just after six o’clock, everything was finished and the new channels were ready. in the air”. Customers with receivers who support DVB-T2 do not have to do anything: the receivers automatically recognize the signal and scan again for transmitters.

The switch to DVB-T2 entails the arrival of HD images via Hevc. Older receivers for DVB-T can not handle this signal, so customers must exchange their Digitenne equipment . KPN also has to switch to make frequency space available, which was a requirement for obtaining the broadcasting license for TV signal over the air. The intention is that from 2020 the 700MHz band will be used for 4g or 5g. Now that band is in use for DVB-T.

In October last year, KPN transferred to region 1, or Groningen, Drenthe and a part of Friesland. On 26 February the northern part of Friesland follows, which KPN calls region 2.1. On that date, KPN will also change the frequencies in region 1 and region 2.1. The next day users have to scan the channels again.
