Malaysia is halfway towards completing its migration to going fully digital in terrestrial TV broadcast. At 12.30AM on 15 October, the analogue TV system was shut down completely in the northern and eastern region of Peninsular Malaysia, covering 49 analogue TV transmission stations in Perlis, Kedah, Palau Pinang, Perak, Kelantan, Terengganu, and Pahang. This follows a successful pilot project in Langkawi, Kedah.
Malaysia is one step closer to going fully digital in terrestrial TV broadcasting. The government today announced the nationwide pilot transition of analogue TV to digital TV transmission in stages until 30 September 2019. This rides on the back of a successful pilot transition held in Langkawi on 21 July 2019.
