55 mln DTT households in EU by 2009

The number of EU households with digital terrestrial television (DTT) is set to reach nearly 55 million by 2009, representing 55% of all digital households in the union and 30% of all TV households, according to a new report from Juniper Research. Furthermore, whilst none of the ten new member states have yet launched DTT services, most are expected to begin transmissions within the next five years, contributing more than 5 million DTT households by the end of the decade.
