    To All:

    Who would like to have a standard definition (SD) Digital Multimedia Broadcast Terrestrial (DTMB-T) set-top-box?

    For now, I just want to get a rough figure count.

    If you missed my previous post, I will say it again. Cuba does not use VHF-Low band channels 2-6; don't expect to receive Es.

      If you watch this video carefully, even if you don't understand Spanish--

      ....even hi-VHF is not being considered. A UHF antenna is pictured insofar as receiving the digital picture.

        ** CUBA. DTV: 5TH DIGITAL TELEVISION FORUM ENDS IN CUBA
        http://plenglish.com/index.php?o=rn&...m-ends-in-cuba

        Havana, Nov 8 (Prensa Latina) The 5th Digital Television Forum ends
        today after several debates about new technologies and the ''analog
        blackout'' in Cuba.

        According to the Deputy Minister of Communications, Ana Julia Marin,
        the transition could happen by the year 2023. By then it is expected that the coverage of this technology in the country should be around 100 percent because at present the signal only covers 60 percent, she added.

        The official said that the country is preparing a partial analog
        blackout to give continuity to the digital television program, which
        will be reinforced in the next five years.

        The action will eliminate a single channel of the old spectrum and for
        that, an area with good reception and the most appropriate
        technological conditions will be chosen to measure the impact of the
        test, Marin explained.

        A report from the Business Group of Information Technology and
        Communications (GEIC) broadcast at the Digital Television Forum,
        explained that the signal broadcasting entities are located in the main urban centers and therefore, the service is available for 70 percent of the Cuban population.

        This coverage is possible thanks to 108 broadcasting entities installed since 2013 when the digitalization project began. Of these entities, 98 emit the standard signal, and 10 do so in high
        definition, the GEIC added.

        Until last September more than 1.5 million decoder boxes were sold to
        the population, as well as more than 230,000 hybrid TVs, capable of
        capturing the digital signal, the report added. sgl/lrp/rc/bhq/clau/gdc (via Mike Cooper, DXLD)
