The most important advantage of MinDig TV service is its free-of-charge availability, without a subscription fee, a fixed-term commitment or a contract – provided that the required reception equipment is available. The main characteristics of the service are immaculate digital image and audio quality and convenient features (e.g. an electronic programme guide). Currently 12 television channels – including the most popular commercial and public services – are availabe free of charge (M1, M2, Duna TV, M4 Sport, M5, Duna World, RTL Klub, TV2, FEM3, Izaura TV, Zenebutik, Spektrum Home) in excellent quality, without ghosting, scintillation or colour distortion. With the most advanced technology the cost-free reception of high-definition (HD) programmes (5 from the total of 12 channels) is provided. In addition to the most popular commercial and public TV channels, public radio channels (Radio Kossuth, Petofi Radio, Radio Bartok, Danko Radio) can also be received as part of our service.
