"The UK has long blown its’ own trumpet as being at the centre of the transition to digital TV, is this really true?

Other European countries have switched off analogue signals and, while the UK is saddled with millions of legacy MPEG-2 boxes, later entrants to DTT have been able to go directly to the latest MPEG-4 technology, allowing for a simpler transition to HD.

Throughout Europe there are a variety of platforms with a mixture of Pay and Public Service Broadcast service models to challenge the consumer electronics and broadcast hardware manufacturers that sell into this market."
