The Digital TV Revolution is here!

A helpful reminder that the date has passed to change your system to TDT

aka “Dude, Where’s my TV?”

aka “My Telly’s Gone Bung!” (Australian English Slang for not working)

If you’ve just come back from a nice, relaxing holiday weekend away and switched on the TV, you may well be wondering where all your favourite channels have gone. Well, in fact they haven’t gone anywhere, just migrated to the new Digital Terrestrial standard. Since the launch of the system in Spain several years ago, people have been generally unexcited / unenthusiastic / unimpressed by the new platform, which prompted the government to bring forward the “analogue blackout” by two years to, well, last Friday. Ah, that would explain a lot, then …

If you go to the official state website for TDT, you’ll find a very helpful Troubleshooting section (see image right), which will help you to find out if it’s just you who has problems or everyone else in your building. At the same time, it will also try to find out which planet you have been living on for the past few years and why anyone would not be happy at seeing the same rubbish as traditional television multiplied by four (typically, there are 40 channels now, depending on where you live) and in higher resolution.

If this is your case, then this is the site you need – Página principal – Televisión Digital.

And if this is isn’t your case, then congratulations – I think.

Strange Random TV Quote:

I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book.  Groucho Marx
