Analogue broadcasts to end on December 31

Central and local television stations must stop analogue broadcasting before December 31, 2018, under an amendment to Decision No 2451/QD-TTg on transmission, terrestrial TV broadcasting digitalisation by 2020.

The rule was approved by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on March 14.

The digitalisation programme is being conducted in four phases, with Ha Noi, HCM City, Hai Phong, Đà Nang and Can Tho leading the way. Twenty-six provinces were involved in the second phase, which ended on December 31, 2016.

The third phase, with a deadline of December 31, 2018, will be implemented in several provinces. These include Thanh Hoa, Nghe An, Ha Tinh and Quảng Bình, as well as Quang Tri, Thừa Thien-Hue, Quang Nam and Quảng Ngai, in addition to Dình Dinh, Phú Yen, Lâm Don and Ninh Thuan. Also included in this phase are Bình Phưoc, Tay Ninh, Tra Vinh and Soc Trang, as well as Bạc Lieu, Ca Mau and Kien Giang provinces. Areas outside the coverage of digital broadcasting stations in Quang Ninh, Bac Giang, Thai Nguyen and Phu Thọ, as well as Ninh Bình, Binh Thuan, Dong Nai, Ba Ria-Vung Tàu and Khanh Hoa are also included in this phase.

In the fourth phase, digitalisation will be rolled out in remote provinces in the northern and central regions.

According to the amendment, the Viet Nam Public Utility Telecommunication Services Fund will be used to help impoverished households access digital television by 2020.
