Germany’s Conference of Directors of the media authorities (Direktorenkonferenz der Landesmedienanstalten – DLM), which represents the interests of the country’s 14 regional media authorities, has called for preparations to begin for the upgrade of Germany’s digital terrestrial television network to DVB-T2.

ARD, Germany’s regional public-service broadcaster consortium, has already announced its transition to DVB-T2 from 2016 onwards.

Around four million households in Germany receive terrestrial digital TV. For around half of these homes digital terrestrial is the main means of TV reception.
