Slides the passage of the encoding of the channels from Mpeg2 to Mpeg4 al November 15, previously set for 1 September 2021.

The date of the switch-off , originally scheduled for 2022, is now postponed to 2023.

This postponement was decided during a meeting, held on July 27, following which the Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) presented a new document containing the Establishment of a national calendar identifying the deadlines of the roadmap for the implementation of the objectives of Decision (EU) 2017/899.
