Swedish operator Com Hem has set 8th September as the date it will stop broadcasting an analogue signal.
According to the company, about 70 per cent of the 1.6 million homes that are likely to be affected by the switch-off already watch digital TV.
Going fully digital will enable Com Hem to provide a competitive basic supply of channels for viewers to watch on their TV, or stream via the Comhem Play app. The analogue switch-off also releases capacity for faster broadband on its network, according Samuel Skott, Com Hem’s head of commercial affairs.
It will still offer a basic range of subscription-free digital channels, as well as Finnish, Danish and Norwegian TV, depending on location.
