State sets five-month target for digital migration
The much delayed move from analogue comes nearly a decade after the initial deadline
The government has set itself a five-month target to complete the move from analogue to digital television, a process that has been hampered by delays and unmet deadlines for a decade.
The government began the migration to digital across households in the Free State, where it has made the most progress.
