Digital broadcasting national switch November


Malawi Digital Broadcasting Network Limited (MDBNL) has said the country is expected to fully migrate from analogue to digital television broadcasting in November this year.

MDBNL Chief Executive Officer, Dennis Chirwa, said on Thursday in Lilongwe, in an interview, when Minister of Information and Communications Technology Malison Ndau visited MDBNL offices.

Northern and Eastern regions have already migrated to digital broadcasting.


“We have not yet reached the whole country. We are still reaching 60 percent of the population but come November, we will be reaching above 80 percent of the country,” Chirwa said.

He said the national switch is expected to be preceded by installation transmitters in Karonga and Thyolo.

Ndau said he visited MDBNL offices to appreciate what is happening.


“From what I have seen, we are happy although there are some people who are not happy. But it is always like that when changes are initiated. Not all people are ready to embrace the changes,” the minister said.

Ndau said there are some people who do not understand on the price of decoders.
