The purpose of this paper is to examine the process of the switchover in Taiwan, the technical standards, legal considerations, resistance from industry and the detailed plan to close analogue signals before the due day.

The government in Taiwand believed that the deployment of terrestrial digital infrastructure, the supply of affordable reception equipment (set-top boxes) and marketing campaigns to stimulate consumer demand would ensure the digital switchover would be a success. It could be concluded that, technically, the digital switchover went smoothly. But there's no digital dividend spectrum vacuumed and designed for future use
