Colombian TV services regulator CNTV is upgrading the European standard DVB-T it adopted three years ago to the second generation version, DVB-T2, the watchdog said on its website.

The regulator decided to migrate to DVB-T2 following a public consultation.

This evolution will allow users to access a greater number of television services, mainly in high definition and 3D, with a better image, better quality, more content, more interactive services, and the possibility of integrating them with other telecommunications services, according to CNTV head Jaime Andrés Estrada.

According to a study by the regulator, DVB-T2's average capacity is 42% higher than the previous system's. This offers TV operators greater capacity to offer content.

The DVB-T2 system has been implemented in countries like Italy, the UK, Sweden, and Finland.
