Spain mandates HDTV tuners

by Rapid TV News

Website: Rapid TV News

Spain’s Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Commerce will oblige TV sets from 21 inches up to integrate high definition tuners by a Royal Decree. The decree is in the preparation phase.

This Decree will also incorporate the standards for HDTV in Spain according to Francisco Ros, general secretary for Telecommunications and the Information Society.

Currently, some TV sets ready for Blu-ray connections are being sold but not all of them can receive the terrestrial HDTV signal with the maximum quality and they need an external tuner.

Finally the secretary pointed out the Audiovisual General Law allows the country’s autonomous regions to agree to broadcast their digital TV channels in each other’s territories, something that’s already been happening for years in the case of analogue television.
