Cyprus stepped over to the digital era, with the introduction of digital TV as of midnight.

Stelios Himonas, Department of Electronic Communications Director at the Ministry of Communications and Works told CNA that “we are ready and on alert in order to cope with any problems that might arise”.

He said that digital technology provides flexibility to providers and the benefits over analogue include excellent picture and sound quality, use of the Electronic Program Guide [EPG] that provides the viewer with programme information such as titles, start and finish times, program duration/ description and better signal reception (compared to analogue reception).
