As expected, the local TV stations have switched off their analog signals on April third and now we have all digital stations. Almost. There is still one station, mola tv, that is still broadcasting an analog signal and hasn’t found a digital home. (There are some slots available.) The previous analog stations all have the same announcement appearing, namely switch to digital.

death of an analoque

We switched to digital in two phases; analog antenna-tv died at the end of August 2007 and analog cable-tv at the and of February 2008.

I can't see any of the TVE stations. I can't see 25TV and the other three in the same group and I have some other problems

Of course, I don't really care since I no longer watch TV. Nor my neighbours...

TV reception

I use the list of stations at http://www.tdt1.com/canales-television-barcelona.php

The antenna on my building is pointed towards Torre de Collserola, where most of the transmitters are located. I also receive some stations from Mataró and Sabadell. The channel that has 25TV (48) also has Canal Català, but Localia and Urbe TV have stopped broadcasting.

I don't watch that much TV myself, but there are special events and movies that I like.

Re: TV reception

I get the same signal, except that I'm right behind a hill and I need the amplifiers to work. Amplifiers are dying at a really fast rate, so that's why we don't get those.

I'll miss this year's ESC
