Cable becomes completely digital. Analog will be switched off.


January 15th, 2018. This year's comprehensive switch from analogue to digital cable television is entering its final phase. The vast majority of cable TV viewers now use the large selection of TV programs in the digital standard.

The German media authorities have jointly with industry associations, cable operators and TV broadcasters founded the initiative Digitales Kabel to accompany the transition to sole digital TV distribution on German cable networks.

The members of the initiative Digitales Kabel are the media authorities, cable association ANGA, network operators Vodafone Deutschland, Telekom Deutschland and PŸUR, commercial broadcaster association VPRT and broadcast groups ARD, Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland and ProSiebenSat.1.

Consultancy and research group Goldmedia has been commissioned to operate the project office.
