We will be expecting DTT (Digital Terrestrial Television) to be introduced widely here in Malaysia very soon. DTT will be one of the must-have function all the new TV shipped into Malaysia as it will be widely adopted here in Malaysia.
Currently we are using the ATT (Analogue Terrestrial Television) to receive free TV channel and it has limited channels, interference and snowy picture, only standard picture quality and bilingual sound.
With the new DTT, there will be more selection TV channels, no more snowy picture, High Definition Quality, multiple language sound/subtitles and on-screen TV guide
In fact, we already have Free DTT provider from Astro, Njoi but the receiver is via Satellite dish instead of aerial.
According to source, Malaysia government will be giving out some set-top-box to selected public to try this pilot project in these few month starting Jun 2015.
