Spain completing terrestrial retune
The last terrestrial TV services broadcast in the 800 MHz frequency band, which is being used across Europe for mobile broadband / 4G services, are being switched, with services now only available on new frequencies triggering a countrywide retune in order for households to continue receiving all locally available TV services.
The switch had been postponed several times amidst fears the households weren't going to be ready for the change. The 800 MHz frequency band was intensively used for digital terrestrial television in Spain. Another retune is likely by the end of the decade, when the whole of Europe moves towards clearing the 700 MHz frequency band for more mobile services.
