Switching to DVB-T2 in Poland: How Deko TV PRO2 is handling it
Introduction to Switching to DVB-T2
Poland will switch its TV signal from DVB-T to the more modern DVB-T2 standard in December 2023. This step is part of a broad plan to modernize the country’s digitization. The switchover of MUX-3 to DVB-T2/HEVC will take place in two stages between December 14 and 19, with parallel broadcasts of some TVP programs in both standards for about a month. This change applies to the MUX-1 and MUX-3 multiplexes, and after December 31, 2023, broadcasting on MUX-3 will be exclusively in DVB-T2.

The change is crucial for terrestrial TV users. Old DVB-T receivers will no longer work with the new standard, requiring equipment adjustments. For many viewers, this may mean replacing the TV or purchasing a suitable tuner/decoder, such as the Deko TV PRO2.
Deko TV PRO2 as Solution
In this context, a device like the Deko TV PRO2, a tuner equipped with a DVB-T2 head unit, is an ideal solution. It provides reception of terrestrial digital channels in the new DVB-T2 standard with H.265 codec HEVC and DVB-C cable TV channels.
Summary and Further Directions
The switch to DVB-T2 is an important step in the modernization of TV digitization in Poland. For users who don’t want to replace their TVs with new models, the solution is to buy a tuner like the Deko TV PRO2.
