Uganda to launch DTT next year
14 Dec 10 -

Uganda is set to launch a digital terrestrial television service next year.

The country has been testing digital signals and the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation has been working alongside Multichoice Uganda, the local arm of the South African pay TV operator, to launch the service.

"Multichoice is very prepared for DTT and has been testing the DVB-T2 networks in Soweto, South Africa to ensure that this technology is the most efficient for the rollout into markets such as Uganda," said Charles Hamya, managing director Multichoice Uganda.
