The leader of the Mexican Sub Secretary of Economy, Bruno Ferrari, informed that the aforementioned agency was waiting for the approval of the budget to be assigned to support, by means of subsidies, the purchase of DTT STBs. According to the officer, the objective is to "make the purchase of devices easier for Mexican families". However, neither the total amount for such project nor the way economic aid will be granted to beneficiaries have been defined yet.
El Financiero newspaper informed that such secreatry will be in charge of carrying out actions and implementing mechanisms to enable STB purchase. Up to 100% or even lower subsidies will be considered, something that will be defined according to the approved budget. The economic support will be assigned to the 26,3 households fitted with TV sets, which means that the 87% of the families will be benefited..
Although Congress has not passed the budget, it has been disclosed that USD 40 millions have been requested for the 2011 budget package. "It is clear that we will be the vehicle that will enable STBs to be accessible for evyrone who has an analog TV set, we are not sure about the final outcome, but we need to start next year", Ferrari stated.
Moreover, the executive explained that the Official Mexican Norm will be modified in virtue of the commercialization of electronic, electrical and home appliances so that the leyend reads "suitable for digital TV broadcastings under ATSC standard". A decree issued by the President, Felipe Calder?n, has recently brought the analog blackout forward from 2021 to 2015. The transition will start in 2011 in the north area of the country.
