    Default DVB-T switch off in Europe

    On my recent European trip I notice some broadcasters are switching off DVB-T all together in favour of streaming.... Following Belgium, Switzerland will go of DVB-T later this year....>>>






    Will it happen here ? Looks like things are heading that way with 7 and 9 already have streaming only channels.

    Might have done if we had FTTP, FTTN wouldn’t leave much bandwidth for anything else even using QOS, and obviously the further away from the node or poorer your connection the worse it becomes, except of course those who did get FTTP, the rest of us can watch good ol 576, if we’re lucky 😁

    There's a lot of people who get crap speeds even with FTTP during peak demand times.

    A mate with FTTP NBN through Telstra gets blistering speed when the network isn't busy, but often got better reliability from ADSL 2+ in the evenings.

    Australia is soooo far behind many other countries with broadband delivery.
