On August 23 RA Government approved the requirements on the implementation of the description of provision of services of terrestrial digital television and radio broadcasting system in the Republic of Armenia. The Government’s decree and its supplement are a technical task, which should be implemented for switching from analogue to digital broadcasting. “In fact, by this decision we approved the technical requirements, and the companies, who will assume the duties of digitization of our television, will be invited to participate in the tender. We have a commitment to the European Union and have to carry it out by 2015”, said the RA Prime Minister Tigran Sargsian at the Government’s session (as quoted on the RA Government website, www.gov.am). It should be noted that analogue broadcasting should be switched off in Armenia from January 1, 2015.
