MavEtJu writes "The Netherlands is the first European country which has switched off its analogue terrestrial signal. According to
Signaal op digitaal (dutch for "The signal is going digital") and Screen Digest (a good explanation in english), it won't be a lot of fuzz: Only 74 thousand households will be affected and have to buy a digital decoder because they are still using their own antenna. Is the rest of the Netherlands so apathetic towards television? No, the infrastructure for television has been very centralized: Instead of an atenna on every roof, since the 1960s every suburb had its own big antenna in the middle, with cables going from it to all houses. Later, in the 1980s, the big antennas were replaced by city-based or region-based receiver stations which could pick up both terrestrial and satellite signals. See the dutch Wikipedia for more information about the history of the client-side of the dutch television infrastructure." top

To overcome that issue, I have created the FreeBSD Multimedia Resources list with links to the published media."
