Ziggo switches off analogue TV signal in Rotterdam in September




Ziggo has announced that it will switch off the analogue TV signal in Rotterdam during the night of 18 to 19 September. This also happens in other areas, such as Hoek van Holland and Rozenburg. Ziggo started phasing out analogue TV this year.

According to VodafoneZiggo CEO Jeroen Hoencamp, the number of people who still use analogue TV has declined sharply in recent years. That is why it would now be necessary to switch to digital television, he says in an announcement . The changeover in Rotterdam also takes place in Hoogvliet, Rozenburg, Hoek van Holland and Pernis. According to the provider, people can check if they are using digital TV by going to channel 14 on their TV. Is that Ziggo Sport, then there is digital TV.

Ziggo announced in March that it will phase out the analog TV signal. The company started in Capelle aan den IJssel and has now also passed Flevoland. The project must be completed in two years.

The conclusion of the analog signals is related to the freeing of bandwidth on the VodafoneZiggo network. The company wants to use it for the introduction of Docsis 3.1, where it already carries out tests. The provider is not the only one that disables the analogue signal. Delta does that, for example . According to Ziggo it will remain possible to keep listening to analog radio.
