Garba said that the switch over would be from October 30, when television users will require digital STB to receive TV signal.

He added that the ministry would supply the STB to all Primary Health Centres, Community Viewing Centres, Local Education Authorities, primary and basic schools and the 44 Local Government Councils in the state.
