Vietnam has achieved its goal of shutting down analog television and switching to digital television by 2020, after nine years of implementation.
“With the closure of full analog terrestrial television by 2020, Vietnam is ranked 5th out of 10 ASEAN countries, 78/193 countries in the world in terms of resolving television digitization”, said Minister Nguyen Manh Hung in his announcement on January 11, in Hanoi. Earlier, the Ministry of Information and Communication stopped broadcasting analog television, completing the digitization of terrestrial television from 0:00 on 28 December 2020.
The above results, according to Minister Hung, show that Vietnam belongs to the group of developed countries in turning off similar television waves; achieves and goes beyond all the initial goals set by the TV Digitalization Project, with the target of turning off the wave by 2020. ASEAN countries that have completed it before Vietnam include Brunei (2017), Singapore (2019), and Malaysia (2019), Thailand (2020).
