Croatia has begun digital terrestrial TV (DTT) broadcasts in the capital Zagreb and the coastal town of Rijeka, the Broadband TV News website reports.
In Zagreb, the broadcasts come from two transmitters - HRT Dom (UHF 56) and Sljeme (UHF 27) - while in Rijeka the Ucka (UHF 28) transmitter is being used.
The transmissions from Sljeme can be received in parts of neighbouring Slovenia, while those from Ucka cover the Adriatic and Italian region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. A fourth transmitter will soon be activated in the eastern town of Osijek (UHF 33) and will cover parts of neighbouring Serbia.
The DVB-T multiplex currently carries Croatia's four main channels - HRT1, HRT2, Nova TV and RTL Televizija - and can be received with set-top boxes costing around 200 euro.
