As an abbreviation for Digital Video Broadcasting — Terrestrial, DVB-T means transmitting digital signal (multiplex) and using radio frequency spectrum much more efficiently. This system transmits compressed digital audio, video and other data in an MPEG transport stream, using coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (COFDM or OFDM) modulation.

DVB-T is mainly used in Europe, Russia, Australia, India and many other countries. Each country has its own date for analog switch-off. In Europe most countries will switch off analog TV transmitters by the year 2012.
