2. What do I need to get access to DTT?


DTT is already available throughout Portugal. In most areas, MEO - Serviços de Comunicações e Multimédia offers this service using terrestrial reception - "DTT zones", but in some areas coverage is provided using other means, including satellite (DTHDTT) - "DTH zones". This is because, in technical terms, it is virtually impossible and economically unfeasible to cover 100 percent of the population using terrestrial transmissions (given use of a single frequency network).

Therefore, to switch to DTT, the first step is to find out what type of coverage there is where you live, i.e. you need to find out whether you live in a DTT zone or DTH zone.
