DigitAlb is an Albanian digital satellite and terrestrial TV platform based in Tirana, Albania. The TV platform began terrestrial broadcasts in July 2004, and satellite broadcasts by the end of that year. At the same time, DigitAlb began broadcasting some channels of defunct AlbaniaSat's satellite platform SAT + which eventually went bankrupt. DigitAlb closely collaborates with sports package SuperSport while having introduced wireless DVB-H technology for wireless TV for the first time in Albania since 2006. The company forms part of Top Media Group together with Top Channel, Top Albania Radio, Top Gold Radio, newspaper Shqip, Shqip Magazine, Top News, VGA Studio, My Music Radio, and musicAL.

Foreign popularity

Due to the massive emigration of Albanians during early 1990s, Kosovan emigration during the 1998-1999 and also older Albanian diaspora in Europe, Digit-Alb was seen as a very good possibility to keep cultural connection to the motherland from almost all the Albanians. With almost 3.5 million Albanians (excluding Albania and Kosovo) living in Europe, the popularity of the Digit-Alb platform was very high since the beginning of the broadcast, and it is considered as the Platform of all the Albanians.
