Mozambique's TMT has been issued a licence to encrypt, multiplex, transport and broadcast the country's digital terrestrial television (DTT) signal by the National Communications Institute.
TMT, a joint venture between publically-owned companies Televisao de Mocambique (TVM), Radio Mocambique (RM) and Telecomunicacoes de Mocambique (TDM), was established to transport and distribute the country's digital TV signal.
Mozambique adopted the European DVB-T2 DTT standard in November 2010. Following that, the government set up the National Commission Digital migration (FOO) to draw up the national migration policy from analogue to digital broadcasting.
Tanzania and Rwanda were the only African countries to have completed the migration from analogue to digital terrestrial television (DTT) in time for the ITU's global deadline in June, according to the Africa Telecommunications Union (ATU). However Mozambique and Malawi were highlighted by the ITU as having made headway in their efforts to migrate to digital television transmission.
