Digital volunteer shuts down

More than 3 thousand volunteers helped to resolve the difficulties with setting up digital television that occurred among residents of the Chelyabinsk region.

Over the past week, the regional “hot line” received 202 applications to call volunteers. Across the region, 30 applications are currently under work, which will be processed by the end of the month. In total, since April 2019, since the beginning of the work of the regional “hot line”, more than 9.5 thousand South Ural residents have received the help of volunteers.

Today, November 29, a significant event will take place in the history of broadcasting in the Chelyabinsk Region - the regional television channel OTV will begin broadcasting in a new digital format. South Urals residents will be able to watch OTV broadcasts daily on the 9th button, from 6.00 to 9.00 and from 17.00 to 19.00 local time. The content of the insets will be made up of news and author rating programs, to which the television viewers are accustomed. Among them - “There is a question”, “Governor 74”, “SuperStar” and others.

The beginning of broadcasting of the regional OTV channel on OTR will be the final stage in the transition of the Chelyabinsk region to digital broadcasting. Starting November 30, the Operational Headquarters to coordinate the transition to digital television will be completed under the leadership of Viktor Mamin, First Deputy Governor of the Chelyabinsk Region. Volunteers of digital television will complete their work. Celebration of the best will be held in December at the annual youth assembly. It is worth noting that the federal hotline 8-800-220-20-02 will be available. It will still be possible to get advice on the transition to digital broadcasting. Compensation from the regional budget for the purchase of digital equipment will also continue. The application can be submitted before April 30, 2020.
