Help is always there

On June 3, the entire Chelyabinsk Region will switch to digital TV broadcasting. Since September 2018, volunteers of the city “To the Call of the Heart” volunteer center have been visiting Magnitogorsk to facilitate the process of transition to the number of elderly Magnitogorsk citizens.

Volunteers provide targeted assistance to veterans who have already purchased a set-top box for receiving the DVB-T2 broadcast standard, but cannot cope with connecting to a TV on their own. As part of the departure, the volunteer connects the set-top box, and if necessary, the antenna. Then he sets up the console and gives a short briefing on how to use the new equipment. To date, the department of social protection of the city’s administration has received 158 appeals from veterans about connecting the set-top box to the old TVs, 100 of them worked out by volunteers, 49 people managed to cope with the connection independently, 9 veterans wait for a volunteer visit.

Anyone can ask for help in connecting to volunteers, you just need to call the RTRS hotline telephone number: 8-800-220-20-02 or call the Social Security Department of the Magnitogorsk administration: 26-03-52.
