The analog terrestrial transmission of Doordarshan will become history after some time, mainly because of the steps taken by Prasar Bharati to change the technology. which is the following.
Why did analog transmission need to be discontinued?
Committees of TRAI, MIB, BARC, MIB, etc. The use of frequencies used by Doordarshan for Analog Terrestrial Transmission (ATT) was explored. These committees found that the method of television broadcasting by analog terrestrial transmission (ATT) was now irrelevant, apart from being inefficient.
The Expert Committee on Prasar Bharati in January 2014 recommended the spread of alternative technologies and the adoption of DD Free Dish DTH (DD Direct Plus) as the primary medium of broadcast for Doordarshan. Also, asked to stop the broadcast of Analog Terrestrial TV after some hiatus.
So the old antenna is of no use?
Where analog terrestrial transmission (ATT) has been stopped and digital transmission has not started, there are no longer used, but where digital transmission is going on, this antenna can be used again.
Know about the old antenna used in Doordarshan
Analog transmission is already closed in major cities -
Analog transmission has already stopped in major cities of India and digital transmission has now started on the same frequency. Earlier, only the Doordarshan channel used to come on the same frequency, now with the introduction of digital broadcasting, 8 channels are running that too in the digital picture and sound quality.
Prasar Bharati now has the option to add private TV channels in local cities through e-auction in this digital transmission broadcast, same as private FM radios.
But for the time being, where analog transmission has been discontinued, people will be encouraged to switch to DD Free Dish. However, 98 percent of India's population is already using DD Free Dish, other DTH, or cable TV.Read in Hindi
