In 2017, the Steering Committee will continue to implement activities related to the scheme and focus on a number of issues related to amending the Decision 2451/QD-TTg of the Prime Minister.
 
The digital television coverage of 05 Central cities and the neighboring provinces is complied with the scheme and is better than the analogue one. In most covered areas, the number of received channels is from 26 to 70 (including 05 to 07 high definition channels - HDTV). The quality and number of channels are improved markedly.
 
In Phase 2, the Steering Committee decides to digitize the provinces of Group II, which are covered with digital television, supported with terrestrial digital TV receivers (STB): Thai Binh, Nam Dinh, Ninh Binh, Bac Giang, Phu Tho, Quang Ninh, Thai Nguyen, Dong Nai, Long An, Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Binh Thuan, Tien Giang, Ben Tre, Dong Thap, An Giang and stops analog TV broadcasting (main broadcasting stations) before July, 01, 2017.

At the local level, the propaganda has also been stepped up, especially on analog TV channels and local communication systems.
 
In addition, to assess the situation before deciding to stop analog broadcasting, the MIC carried out the survey on methods of watching TV in 4 central cities and affected localities; at the same time, collected data on terrestrial digital TV receivers sold in the market. The results showed that, until August,15, 2016, the percentage of households watching digital terrestrial TV and other methods in 04 cities: Ha Noi, Hai Phong, Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho was high enough to reach the conditions to stop analog broadcasting under Decision No. 2451/QD-TTg.
