According to report reaching oyogist.com, Lagos state is set to begin phase two of switching from analogue broadcasting to digital broadcasting.

This was disclose by the Special Assistant to President Buhari on Digital and New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi via his verified twitter handle.

He said: “This week is Digital Switch Over in Lagos. Means Lagos is switching from Analogue to Digital Broadcasting. You’ll now need a Set-Top-Box (aka decoder) to access terrestrial TV. UPSIDES: high-quality audio/video, more terrestrial channels, audience measurement for advertisers etc.”

“It’s part of a worldwide shift from analogue TV broadcasting to digital. South Africa has just started, Zimbabwe too. Nigeria started 2016, 6 States and FCT completed in phase 1, Lagos (April 29, 2021) marks the start of Phase 2.”

“The implementing agency is @nbcgovng, under @FMICNigeria. Follow #DSObyNBC for updates.”

“Analogue signals occupy a lot more spectrum space than digital, so the #DSObyNBC will free up quite a bit of spectrum that can be used for other things. That’s more government revenues, and benefits for private sector and the Public.”

“This is what the new decoders for Digital terrestrial TV #DSObyNBC in Lagos will look like. With it you should have access to dozens of free-to-air channels delivering high quality sound and image. April 29, 2021 is the switchover date.”
