Almost 8 of thousands of Transbaikal residents will receive free satellite equipment
More than 8 of thousands of Transbaikalia residents living in the area of uncertain reception of digital television broadcasting will receive free sets of satellite equipment. 76 million rubles were allocated for the implementation of this project. In total, in the zone of uncertain reception in Transbaikalia there are 306 settlements.
“For all consumers living outside the digital broadcasting zone, sets of digital TV are installed, except for those who already have equipment in operation. This category of citizens uses a paid TV package. Moreover, they can switch to a free package of compulsory television programs, ”said Viktor Pazdnikov, deputy chairman of the regional government of the Trans-Baikal Territory. According to him, the transition to free federal television broadcasting costs 2500 rubles, which will be compensated by the consumer. Also, assistance in acquiring a special set-top box for digital television broadcasting can be obtained by privileged and socially unprotected categories of citizens.
Earlier it was reported that analog broadcasting in the Trans-Baikal Territory will be discontinued on October 14 of 2019 of the year. To receive 20 federal television channels and 3 radio channels in digital quality, the consumer will need either a TV released after 2014 or a set-top box that can be connected to almost any TV.
