TV3 stops HDTV transmissions

Iñaki Ferreras, on 21-09-2008

Catalan regional public broadcaster TV3 has given up its HDTV transmissions via digital terrestrial. These broadcasts were the first of this type in Spain.

TV3 HD gave up its HD broadcasts in a political decision in order to give access to the bandwidth to Valenciano channel Canal9 in the frame of an agreement between both regional governments from Cataluña and Valencia.

TV3 HD was presented as the great project of HDTV over DTT in Spain since April 2007. Another public regional broadcaster, Aragón TV, is continuing its HD transmissions.
