Broadcasting of HD programmes using DVB-T2 HEVC has started throughout the whole of Croatia.

According to the national transmission company OiV, it is being undertaken on the M2 multiplex and simulcasting will continue until the full transition to the standard is completed on July 1, 2020.

It adds that this date was moved from May 1, 2020 by the regulator HAKOM and the first DVB-T2 transmissions began on September 6 this year.

OiV also says that DVB-T2 HEVC will allow for not only better quality pictures (HD) than DVB-T but also improved coverage by the national multiplexes M1 and M2 and local multiplex L1.
