Switchover to digital television broadcasting
On Tuesday, 5th of October 2010 the analogue television broadcasts have been switched off for all national television channels in the Republic of Croatia, thus marking a transition to digital television broadcasting. Several low-power analog transmitters will be in function until the end of the year as the digital transmission of local and regional television is still in testing phase, and due to the fact that a number of households are not fully covered with digital signal. To ease the transition to digital transmission the government has developed a subsidy system of vouchers to users for the purchase of receivers for all digital terrestrial television signals. According to the Strategy of transfer from analogue to digital television broadcasting, the transition to digital television broadcasting will be completed by 1st of January 2011.
