Terrestrial broadcasting is on the threshold of a revolutionary transition to digital worldwide. The process of transition from analogue to digital broadcasting, which offers advantages in terms of spectrum efficiency, higher video and audio quality and new business opportunities, is expected to be at peak level in the next ITU-D cycle in most developing countries. Inevitably, requests for assistance will increase, in line with the upcoming transition to digital terrestrial broadcasting, simulcasting, and the analogue switch-off.

The objectives of the programme in the area of broadcasting is to enable developing Member States to overcome the challenges and migrate smoothly from analogue to digital broadcasting, including terrestrial TV, mobile TV and sound broadcasting, thereby reaping the full benefits of spectrum efficiency.
