Señal Colombia —Colombia's state-owned channel— has made digital terrestrial television broadcast tests since 2006, in northwest Bogotá and downtown Cartagena, transmitting into the three DTV formats (ATSC, DVB-T, and ISDB-T). Also the Chinese standard DMB-T/H, was considered, but couldn't be tested.

HDTV-ready television sets (DVB-T) have been available in Colombia since 2003, but cable and satellite television companies haven't transmit HD content to their subscribers.
