Mozambique will start turning off analogue television transmitters next Monday as the country transitions to the digital era, the National Institute of Communications (INCM) announced on Friday.

In a statement, the INCM said 15 transmitters located in the cities of Maputo, Nampula and Tete will be turned off, followed by another 14 transmitters in remote areas in the second phase.

“The disconnection will be carried out in places where the digital signal and decoders are available,” the statement said.

During the inauguration of a Chinese-supported radio and television digital transition project last October, Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi said the government hopes to increase the territorial coverage of digital transmission to 85 percent by 2024.
