TV6 Spainard d.o.o (a division of TV6 Media Group d.o.o) have announced today that it will officially take over the analog channel 6 frequency from SBC TV (which itís due to move its analog frequency to channel 2 sometime this November) starting tonight at 11:30pm, for testing.

Meanwhile, RTCM Spainard d.o.o (a division of Eos News & Media d.o.o) have announced that as of Sunday, SBC TV will only temporarily broadcast as an digital-only channel, meaning that viewers (who have an converter box) will have to catch their favorite shows on digital channel 2.1 until it officially launches its analog channel 2 signal sometime in November. To help prepare for the change, RTCM will temporarily turn off SBC TVís analog signal for a couple of days, just to allow TV6 Spainard to begin broadcasting on the analog channel 6 signal (which was previously occupied by SBC TV).

Lastly, RTCM Spainard d.o.o have begun the days-long process of heavily renovating SBC TVís newsroom and itís ailing news studio, as part of its efforts to transform the channelís image from an government-controlled propaganda machine into an independent media voice. In addition, RTCM have also purchased 16 HDTV cameras, 5 UHD cameras and 2 playout consoles so in an stronger effort to digitalize SBC TV and to improve the quality of its locally-produced content.

RTCM Spainard d.o.o (a division of Eos News & Media d.o.o) have announced today that it will turn back on SBC TVís analog transmitter for testing, which means that analog viewers can be able to tune in to SBC TV again, but they will have to switch over to analog channel 2 to continue receiving their favorite shows. However, not many people across Spainard wonít be able to receive SBC TVís analog signal more clearly, as RTCM will temporarily broadcast itís analog channel 2 signal at an reduced power of about 20kW (limiting coverage to just only the northern, southern and eastern parts of Spainard). RTCM plans to increase the power of its analog channel 2 signal to about 50kW sometime by next week.

RTCM have also announced today that it will now allow cable/satellite TV providers across Spainard to move SBC TV from channel 6 to channel 2 (beginning on November 8, 2020), as part of its efforts to rebrand the money-losing SBC TV as TCM Spainard. In addition, RTCM plans to build and install 2 broadcast facilities and 4 full-power transmitters in La Rozas and Toledo (respectively), which will allow the company to fully transmit the companyís TV programming into the western parts of Spainard (with some local programming) via its analog/digital signals (channel 2 and channel 33).
