Digital Terrestrial TV Reception

Since the launch of DTT services on 31 December 2007, the first phase of DTT services covers the northern part of the Hong Kong Island, the Kowloon peninsula, part of Shatin and the eastern part of the Lautau Island, amounting to around 50% of population in Hong Kong. My home is located in northern part of New Territories, so need to wait until mid of July, 08.

Last week, I purchased one decoder and connect it to my old "Sony" TV and test the reception before making any decision to but new HD TV set. The decoder start to search TV program when power on and finally all 13 channels were shown up. Signal strength is in between 57-60 % , not bad.

The next step is searching around a suitable HD TV .
