so, does one read from this that the channels will be FTA on digital, or just that AB3 will deliver the muxes for DTT transmitters in france as of sept 2005?

I think it means that from 31 March all 14 FTA channels will be available digital on 5W for the 35% of the population that currently receive analogue. From Sept a full range of services are available (ie other transmissions from other providers not necessarily fTA)

Doesn't really say, but at least the main ones are on there now in digital. :)

Old Analogue at present, looking for advice on what to get.

Hi there,
Sounds like you might be able to help me with a question I have.

I only have an old analogue FTA system that I bought from Lidl and have heard that all TV broadcasts in France will be digital by 2007. I assume that this includes the analogue broadcast on Atlantic Bird.
Will I still be able to free access to French TV via a cheap digital alternative and Will have to buy a cam and either a TPS or Canal card. There is a shop on the net selling the cards from £195.00 but this sounds very expensive.
Cheers,
Jac
