At the beginning of January, viewers of terrestrial television broadcasting must broadcast TV programs all over Latvia / Diena


She explains that with the decision of the National Electronic Media Council (NEPLP) that five TV programs will be broadcast on free terrestrial TV from next year, LVRTC will make changes to the TV broadcasting network on the night of January 5-6. As a result, both pay-TV and free-to-air TV viewers need to retune their channels to their decoders.

On the other hand, if the program is not re-tuned, the free-to-air programs will not be visible to viewers. After dubbing, “LTV1” and “LTV7” programs will also be visible to viewers in HD quality.

The retransmission of programs must be carried out by both free-to-air and pay-TV viewers, as free-to-air programs are also available. Program updates do not apply to viewers who use cable, satellite, or interactive TV services.

To reduce inconvenience to the population, technical work will take place at night. During this time, free-to-air TV programs will be temporarily suspended, as will some of the free-to-air programs.

Residents are invited to re-adjust the programs on January 6 after 6 p.m.

Before re-adjusting programs, various screens may appear on the population screens – “weak signal”, “no program”, “digital stream resume” and other labels. However, such inscriptions may not appear.

On the night of January 6, the technical works necessary for the release of the 700 megahertz television frequency band will be performed simultaneously in order to make this frequency band available to mobile operators. The LVRTC carried out the frequency band release works throughout 2021 and, together with the works planned for January, the frequency band will be fully released and available to mobile operators.

To tune in channels, you need to search for TV shows automatically. To do this, first find the “Search programs” menu in the decoder’s table of contents, then select the automatic search in the “Search mode” section and press OK in the “Start search” menu.

For instructions on automatic channel search, refer to the operating instructions of the decoder or TV. It may differ slightly from one TV model to another.

The LVRTC draws attention to the fact that the TV receiving antenna used by terrestrial TV broadcasters does not need to be adjusted.

It has already been reported that next year, in addition to Latvian Television programs, three commercial television programs – “ReTV”, TV24 “and” TV4 “- will be available on free terrestrial television.

The NEPLP organized a competition for commercial television to three vacancies in free terrestrial broadcasting. SIA “Vidzemes TelevÄ«zija” with the television program “ReTV”, JSC “TV Latvija” with the television program “TV24” and SIA “4.vara” with the television program “TV4” have won the competition for three years, which means that these companies will not have to bear the costs of broadcasting.
