Some 75% of Mexicans Will Have Access to Digital TV

MEXICO CITY – Following the impending delivery of sets in the states of Durango, Hidalgo, Zacatecas, Sinaloa, Sonora and Veracruz, 75 percent of Mexicans will have access to digital television, Deputy Communications Secretary Monica Aspe said.

Aspe said that 7 million of the 9.7 million digital TV sets to be given to low-income households have been distributed ahead of the Dec. 31 end of analog broadcasts.

Mexico’s transition from analog to digital TV has been faster than that of any other country, she said.

“It has not been easy, but the Communications and Transportation Secretariat ... is making the effort to complete the delivery of digital TV sets before Dec. 31,” the official said.

Aspe said the provision of new TVs to poor households gives Mexico’s analog-to-digital transition a social justice aspect not present in any other country.
