The government of La Rioja delivered, together with ARSAT, 500 Open Digital Television antennas.

The initiative is carried out within the framework of the Digital, Open and Free Television Program carried out by the Ministry of Transport and Communications, an action that is carried out between the cooperation of the Government of La Rioja and ARSAT. The delivery of 500 antennas that are already in the province is stipulated within the first stage of this provincial policy.

Regarding the implementation of the plan, work will be carried out together with the Municipalities of the entire province, to reach rural areas and the places of greatest vulnerability with the aim of specifying actions that generate digital inclusion.

Regarding technical issues, the kits will communicate directly with the ARSAT 1 and 2 satellites, this will allow families to have a grid of 12 to 20 channels in high definition for free.

"With this initiative, we bring television to areas that otherwise do not have access to this service and we are collaborating in the federalization of the policies of the national government and in the democratization of access to information," said Minister Bordagaray after the antenna delivery.
