THE DTT PROJECT
(DIGITAL TERRESTRIAL TELEVISION)
The DTT Project delivers more free TV channels in high quality sound and visuals, access to Electronic Program Guide (EPG), various subtitles and a HD quality viewing experience for your TV with digital broadcast. In the future, viewers also can access multiple interactive services such as shopping, video-on-demands, subscription and internet services.
WHY DO WE NEED TO MAKE A SWITCH TO DIGITAL BROADCAST?
The government is in the process of migrating the country's broadcasting system from analogue to full digital broadcast. To enjoy digital broadcast, you will need to connect your current TV and the UHF aerial to a MYTV decoder (Type DVB-T2). Alternatively, you can buy a new Integrated Digital Television (IDTV) that comes with a built-in digital tuner.
myFreeview is the brand name given for Malaysia's Free Digital Television DTT services which offers Malaysia's most popular TV and radio channels free of charge, with no subscription fees.
Digital terrestrial transmission services are now broadcasted nationwide through over 13 transmission towers covering around 80% of the Malaysian population. There will be up to 60 main transmission towers installed by 2017, covering up to 98% of Malaysia's population. Find out if your area is under DTT coverage in the following tables.
The UHF aerial needs to be installed and connected to the decoder's or IDTV's aerial terminal. There are two types of aerials that can receive digital broadcast:
a. INDOOR AERIAL
The indoor aerial can receive signals within a 25km radius from the nearby broadcasting station. However, not all areas within that range can receive the signal due to physical obstructions such as tall buildings or hills.
b. OUTDOOR AERIAL (UHF)
• Outdoor aerials are the best choice as it can fully receive broadcast signals when the aerial is facing the broadcasting station.
• 'Booster' devices are not necessary for the aerial as not only it does nothing to help but rather it disrupts receiving myFreeview services.
