FAQ EN What is required to watch digital terrestrial television?

A dedicated decoder / receiver is required to receive digital television. In modern TV sets it is an integral part of the device. In the case of older televisions, it is necessary to purchase an external device – “set top box”. The device is installed between the antenna (antenna system) and the television set. To receive DVB-T / DVB-T2 digital television, the same antennas as for analogue TV are used.

It is recommended to use multi-element antennas and resign from antenna amplifiers if possible. Room antennas can only be used on sites with high signal strength. The antenna should be directed to the nearest broadcasting facility broadcasting digital television, and then receiver should be programmed in accordance with the user’s manual to receive digital channels.

When selecting the antennas, pay attention to the antenna operational band and the polarization of the signal. Multiplexes MUX-1, MUX-2 and MUX-3 are broadcast via the UHF band. The MUX-8 multiplex is broadcast in the VHF band.
