Watching TV on your boat

[28.05.2018]

On the 1 of December 2018 the National Belgian TV (VRT) stops with transmission via antenna. DVBT will be history. You probably all recognize the small white antenna with the mushroom form insallaed on the roof or radar arch of your boat ?

As of that moment yuou can only see via DVBT the following TV chaines in our harbour RTB, La Trois , Euronews .

If you want to have more info about watching TV on your boat, don"t hesitate and contact Francky .

DVBT antenne

We advise you not to by DVBT equipment anymore if you stay most of the time in our harbour. A better possibility is watching TV via the internet. Via that way you can also watch TV and you don't need an antenna anymore.

As the VRT stops with these transmissions, there is a possibility that other chains will follow this direction. If you need more info about watching TV, don't hesitate to ask questions and get answers from the harbourmaster (Bart).

If you navigate towards Holland, you still can watcch DVBT from Holland. The questioni is , how long will it take that everything will go over the internet as well ?"

The boatsowners in our harbour having a home subscription and a TV subscription can watch TV via Wifi.Just like they are home. As of next year,also Proximus subscribers can watch TV over the internet.

Changes in Belgium for VHF licence

[10.04.2018]

At this moment there are discussions ongoing in Belgium to make a new Royal Decree. The BIPT is asking for a yearly fee. The argument they use is that they have to control the frequencies of VHF. For this job they want to be paid.

When the Royal Decree will be signed, we can expect a yearly fee around 50 Euros. This would be a fee like other similar licences. Be aware , this amount is only an estimation.

To be continued ...
