Italian experience: Just over five million digital terrestrial receivers had been sold in Italy by the end of February, according to market researches Gfk.

Augusto Preta, general manager of consultancy ITMedia Consulting, said that government subsidy was the main reason behind MHP's wide penetration.[...]

Preta said that only 10 per cent of people with MHP boxes used them regularly to watch digital television. Most viewers use them to access pay-per-view services and then switch back to analogue television. Italy's highly regionalised television market, home to around 400 analogue channels, is one likely reason.
