  Speech of Commissioner Paola Manacorda at the Conference on Digital Terrestrial Television
For this reason the Authority has decided to encourage terrestrial broadcasters to go digital, by envisaging special financial incentives: analogue terrestrial operators that will switch to digital within 36 months from the release of the licence will not pay their annual fee for the use of the terrestrial frequency for a six years period.
This means that a terrestrial broadcaster already collecting 30% of the financial resources of the terrestrial television market is still allowed to operate in the radio business or in the satellite TV business.
Nevertheless the objective and the priorities have clearly been set: Digital Terrestrial Television, to which the government is strongly committed, means technological innovation, development of the new media businesses and connected industries, rational and efficient management of the spectrum.

 Digital Terrestrial Television Revolution Put on Hold
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The outlook for the Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) set top box (STB) market is not as rosy as once thought, according to In-Stat/MDR (http://www.instat.com).
"DTT broadcasting is the next generation of over-the-airwaves television signal that is expected to replace today's analog terrestrial television service," said Gerry Kaufhold, a Principal Analyst with In-Stat/MDR.
Television networks need to figure out how to migrate their programming and services onto new, digital, platforms, or consumers will just keep their old, analog TV and thwart the DTT revolution.

  Digital Terrestrial Television.
Digital terrestrial television has been the last of the delivery technologies to develop - mainly because they needed to solve the problem of multipath (the same problem that causes ghosting in our present TV system).
In analogue television we see this phenomena as 'ghosts', and these are caused by secondary signals arrive slightly later than normal, after having bounced off buildings, hills, bridges, etc., along the way.
Analog television in Australia has channels which are 7MHz wide (8MHz in Europe), and so fitting 2000 narrow 'finger' sub-channels into this space isn't all that difficult, and since they are all low-rate, multipath bounce doesn't really effect them unless the delay is substantial.

  GAO-04-926T, Telecommunications: German DTV Transition Differs from U.S. Transition in Many Respects, but Certain Key ...
Although terrestrial broadcasting was once the only means by which German households received television program signals, today only 5 to 7 percent of these households rely on terrestrial broadcasting, with the remainder using cable or satellite service for the reception of television signals.
Terrestrial broadcasting, in fact, is now the method least relied upon by German television households for receiving program signals--only about 5 to 7 percent of German households rely exclusively on terrestrial television.
German DTV Transition Was Largely Designed to Preserve Terrestrial Television: A primary rationale for the German DTV transition was to preserve terrestrial television in the face of a low and declining share of households that rely solely on this method of television reception.

 Microwave
In addition to their telecommunications applications (which include telephony and computer networking, as well as television), microwaves are used in cooking, police radar, and certain military applications.
Prior to the widespread use of communications satellites in television industries, terrestrial microwave relays frequently were used to deliver programming from broadcast networks to their affiliates, or to deliver special event programming, such as sports, to local stations.
Beginning in the 1950s, terrestrial microwave relays were employed to supplement expensive telephone land lines for long distance transmission of programming.

The regulator however hinted that terrestrial television broadcasting sector should be subjected to strict conditions.

 Digital Terrestrial Television, the television of the future. | and in Spain
Digital terrestrial television mixes the advantages of digital television as understood until now — quality of image and sound- and the advantages of terrestrial television, which is the one currently received at home with no need to use a satellite dish.
The digital terrestrial television will, in the very near future, offer a wide range of new television channels, and will, in a few years, go from seven to eight channels to a minimum of fifty.
Nevertheless, due to the future implementation of DTT, the television sets that will be manufactured over the next few years will include this receiver in the set itself, so we will only need to connect the television set to the aerial in order to enjoy the television of the future, digital terrestrial television.

This article is an introduction to the principles behind digital television broadcasting, including audio/video coding and multiplexing, data scrambling and conditional access, channel coding, and digital modulations.
The transmission channels used for digital television broadcasting are, unfortunately, rather error-prone due to a lot of disturbances (such as noise, interference, and echoes).
FEC requires that redundant data is added to the original data prior to transmission, allowing the receiver to use these redundant data to detect and recover the lost data caused by the channel disturbance.
