I've started this blog 5 years ago in what originally
was aimed to capture the digital switchovers all
around the world with the ambition to create an
official Wiki type resource. I soon realized that
Europe in its own right was already a hand full and
as such decided to make an initial start with the UK.
I had worked at Sky and gained my MSc in Digital TV
in the UK and as such knew the industry very well.
When at the end of 2010 my wife got a job in the
USA (she works in Cancer Research) I resigned from
my position in The Netherlands and together we
made the move early January of this year to the USA.
I have been very fortunate to gain a work visa for
the USA and I am very much looking forward to use
my experience in a different part of the world.
In anticipation of a new job I have picked up this site
again and have started making it more complete. My
website is a "blog" that one can regard as another
window to highlight the importance of the Digital
Switchover and the benefits of what Digital TV has
to offer. It has also been an opportunity for me to
learn more about SEO (Search Engine Optimization),
this means that you try to get your website as high
up in Google without spending money on advertising.
My effort has started to pay off as some of my blog
pages recently hit the top position in Google.
The aim of my website is not to make money, though
recently I have started to experiment offering
editional elements from for instance Amazon, Sky
and LOVEFilm (video on demand) to drive traffic to
those websites to see if there is an oppertunity for
this website it extend its existance towards areas
where Digital TV creates its added value.
