The Korea Communications Commission (KCC) and Seoul City are making preparations for the launch of digital broadcasting at the end of next year.

The KCC and the city on Friday signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on a joint project to begin next month that will facilitate the switchover in the city.

Under the agreement, low-income households, the blind and seniors with hearing problems in Seoul will be given free converters, or they can purchase a digital television for 59-thousand won starting next month.

The KCC and the city will also work to improve television reception by replacing old antennas or installing gap-fillers for free in areas where the reception is poor.

Analog television will be switched off on December 31st, 2012.
