In order to keep pace with the most advanced Latin American countries with regard to digital TV, Bolivia, in collaboration with Argentina, has scheduled its analogue switch-off for 2016.
According to the consultancy Next TV Latin America, both countries have signed an agreement to carry out the digital switchover in 2016. The cooperation agreement has already been approved by the International Policy Committee of the Lower House.
The agreement allows for the further redistribution of television frequencies from 2016, once his contract ends.
The document was signed by Bolivia and Argentina in July 2012, and also provides for programming to strengthen Bolivia's state TV channel with educational and cultural content.
