Hanoi (VNA) – The broadcasting of analogue terrestrial television is scheduled to cease in centrally-run Hanoi, Ho Chi Chi Minh City and Can Tho on June 15, and in Hai Phong city on August 15.

It will be replaced by digital terrestrial television, which will provide a greater number of channels and better quality of picture and sound.

The move is in line with a national project approved by the Prime Minister in 2011 to digitise terrestrial television broadcasting throughout the country. The four-phase project aims to switch to digital terrestrial television broadcasting across the country by the end of 2020.-VNA
