Afghan TV programs to switch from analog to digital system

sanginAfghan Minister of Telecommunication and Information Technology Amirzai Sangin announced on Wednesday that Afghan’s TV programs would be converted to Digital Terrestrial Television (DTTV) system, a new digital system that would enhance sound and video quality.

The contract on the project was signed between the Afghanistan Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (ATRA) and the Asia Consultancy Group (ACG) in Kabul on Wednesday.

The project would be first implemented in Kabul city and expanded to other provinces in the later stages.

There are about 60 TV channels in Afghanistan, 35 of which are operating in Kabul.

Most TV channels have not made it to other provinces due to lack of the sufficient budget needed for countrywide broadcasting.

The digital system would allow for the services to be delivered more economically. Instead of spending money on the establishment of stations in different parts of the country, TV channels could spend their money on the quality of their broadcasts, said Mr. Sangin.
