Bosnia and Herzegovina will not be the only country in Europe that is not covered with digital signal, said the Minister of Communications and Transport of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Edin Forto, after the signing of the Contract for the procurement of equipment for digital transmission and broadcasting of Public Broadcasting Services in Bosnia and Herzegovina worth 25.8 KM (VAT excluded).

The Contract was signed between the Ministry of Communications and Transport of BiH and the Consortium conprising the company Sirius 2010, as the holder of the Consortium, and Odasiljači i veze Zagreb, as a member of the Consortium.

Minister Edin Forto signed the Contract on behalf of the Ministry, and Momčilo Đukić, Director of Sirius 2010, on behalf of the Consortium.

18 years after sigining the Geneva Agreement when Bosnia and Herzegovina assumed the obligation to turn off the analog television signal by June 2015, all the preconditions have been fullfilled by signing today's Agreement.

The process of digitisation of TV signals in BiH began with the establishment of the Forum on Digital Television in May 2006. Three years later, in August 2009, the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina adopted the Strategy for the transition from analog to digital terrestrial broadcasting in the frequency bands 174-230 MHz and 470-862 MHz in our country. It was only at the end of March 2014 that the first Agreement on the digitisation of TV signals in the area of Sarajevo, Banjaluka and Mostar was signed within Multiplex A.

Sarajevo, Mostar and Banjaluka are three of the nine digital regions.
