Distribution of Yle’s HD channels in DNA’s VHF terrestrial network to end on 31 March


DNA and Yle have agreed that the distribution of Yle’s HD channels will end in DNA’s VHF terrestrial network on 31 March 2020.

DNA has announced that it will shut down its VHF terrestrial network in 2020, and will also be relinquishing its terrestrial network license at the same time. The schedule for Yle’s HD channel reception has now been specified – the channels will be available via VHF antennas until 31 March.

DNA has previously announced that the distribution of MTV3 and TV5’s HD channels will end in its VHF network at the end of this year. It has also been announced that HD pay channels currently in the VHF network will be transferred to the UHF network at the turn of the new year, in conjunction with a business transaction between DNA and Digita concerning terrestrial pay-TV operations. Subscribers can use UHF antennas to continue receiving the channels and using their pay-TV services. DNA will continue to serve subscribers in its own channels as a partner to Digita. Information about the changes has been sent directly to subscribers.

DNA will be focusing on cable and broadband distribution, and continuing to offer a wide range of TV services throughout Finland. DNA will continue to provide TV services for antenna households via broadband.

DNA selvitti, ketkä käyttävät puhelimillaan eniten mobiilidataa – katso missä ovat ahkerimmat käyttäjät10.1.2020 11:04:18 EETTiedote

Pienemmät kaupungit kirivät monien suurten keskusten ohi mobiilidatan käytössä DNA:n verkoissa vuonna 2019. Ikäryhmistä selkeästi eniten mobiilidataa puhelimillaan käyttivät 18–29-vuotiaat, lähes tuplasti seuraavaan ikäryhmään verrattuna, ja kaikkein kovimmat mobiilidatan käyttäjät löytyvät Rovaniemeltä. Vuoden suurin yksittäinen mobiilidatan kasvupiikki selittyy e-urheilun loppuottelun innokkaalla seuraamisella.
