From April 2016, French terrestrial TV will only be available in MPEG4 and HD.
Terrestrial TV is TV received via a TV aerial.
The changes from MPEG2 to MPEG4 aim to increase bandwidth, and offer more channels in HD.
France’s frequency authority ANFR (l’Agence nationale des fréquences) has started to inform viewers of the upcoming switch-off. On a special website, viewers can see if their receiver is compatible with the new DTT standard or not.
