[Digital Broadcast Vendor News Asia Quote]
Quote on Singapore's Switch over from Analog to Digital from Malaysia's The Star newspaper: --------- The exact date for the switch-over had not been fixed but broadcasters and TV manufacturers had proposed dates that fall within the 2010 to 2015 time frame. Some say we should be more aggressive (in pushing forward the date) while some say we should not be so aggressive. We do not want to be too early or to force people.
