Is Philippines HDTV Ready?


NTC has given TV broadcast companies in the Philippines until December 31, 2015, to fully convert from analog to digital TV.

Most Philippine household televisions are in SD format. I am currently residing in Rizal, and a solid Kapamilya on my free time - whenever I feel like watching local TV. Honestly, the reception in my area for ABS-CBN is not that clear but there are times where my TV actually receives digital signals. Clue: The presence of two bars from top to bottom on an SD TV. I guess Philippine TV receptions are being tested to HD!

This must be a sign for me to get rid of our 3 analog TV sets - and get an HDTV soon!
