Czech Republic[edit]

One of my favourite obscure satellite channels, Óčko, claims to be on DVB-T Mux C in Brno and Prague, yet this article refers only to a Mux A. I'm presuming theres a Mux B somewhere, too? Anyone who actually knows anymore than that willing to update? --Kiand 20:06, 7 March 2006 (UTC)


Why no mention of Switzerland in this article? TiffaF 13:52, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

United States[edit]

Why does the US section start babbling on about HDTV before any mention of standard definition digital tv deployment in the US? Are they just skipping SDTV and going straight to High Definition? Why is there no mention of all the Digital cable and satellite services available? (Comcast, DirecTV etc) --Mgill 13:19, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

Indeed. The sections on Mexico, Uruguay, and Chile also imply that HDTV and digital TV are the same thing or that they require each other, none of which is true. - 21:23, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

United States[edit]

It is estimated that by the end of 2010, 59% of American TVs will be HDTVs. 50 channels will be broadcast in HD.

Is there a source for this statistic? 20:14, 31 January 2007 (UTC)Holly64.200.163.164 20:14, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Hong Kong[edit]

"flat panel widescreen TV monitors are very popular in Hong Kong. Many people enjoy widescreen DVD movies on their TVs despite the lack of HD broadcasts." This seems to be implying that widescreen broadcasts require HD. That's not the case. In the UK we have widescreen broadcasts using standard definition. -JdSf 22:44, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Feb Deadline[edit]

The Feb 2009 Deadline explanation (less chance of hardware shortage) needs to be explained! 00:04, 24 November 2006 (UTC)


In 2005, TV Azteca signed a deal with Harris Corporation's broadcast communications division for digital TV transmitters and HDTV encoding equipment to bring high-definition TV to nine Mexican cities.

This needs a source it's true I found the article once, I would put the citation needed thingy on it, but I don't know how to do that, or cite a Source.--Joeloliv8 19:54, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

The launch will be carried out in two phases. By the third quarter of 2006, HDTV transmissions will be available in Mexico's largest markets: Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey. Phase Two of the national rollout will bring HDTV services to six cities along the Mexico-U.S. border (Matamoros, Reynosa, Nuevo Laredo, Ciudad Juarez, Mexicali and Tijuana) through the first half of 2006. This rollout takes advantage of HDTV receivers already in place thanks to an earlier HDTV rollout by stations on the American side of the border.

This part needs to be written in Past Tense since It already happened. It doesn't make sense. How could the first phase have finished in the third quarter of 2006, while the second phase finished in the second Quarter of 2006, Did they time travel and if so, someone needs to write an article on the first functional time travel machine(Sorry couldn't resist). I'm thinking the first phase ended in 2005, and the second phase ended in 2006, because I saw the world cup in HD here on a Juarez HDTV Station. Also if someone reads this part by itself they will think it applies to all of Mexico, but it only applies to TV Azteca.--Joeloliv8 19:55, 22 September 2007 (UTC)



Needs copyediting!

Split into separate wikis[edit]

The article was too big and hard to read. It has been split into separate wikis, for readability. Thewikipedian (talk) 13:17, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Southeast Asia[edit]

The Southeast Asian nations of Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore may cease analogue broadcasts by 2010 to 2015. Why Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam no plans to switch off analogue broadcasts by 2010 or 2011? 11:48, 13 May 2008 (UTC)


Someone who understands the situation needs to re-write the section on Japan. There's a paragraph on "dubbing" in particular that was written by a non-native English user and makes no sense. Paul Davidson (talk) 11:12, 28 September 2008 (UTC)


I'm not sure what would be a better title for this, but it really isn't a list and shouldn't be named as one — it's an article. Bearcat (talk) 02:00, 31 October 2008 (UTC)


This article exhibits systematic confusion between digital TV and HDTV, often discussing them as if they're the same or as though the former implies the latter. Should the HD info be moved to a separate article? (talk)

Iran _ Tehran DVB-T[edit]
