From 1 January, 2017, a new TV regulation has been implemented in Italy about
tuning technologies. .
This legislation makes it mandatory that television for sale in Italy will
incorporate a specific digital tuner for channels in DVB-T2 technology.
With this legislation in place, the sale of products not fitted with DVB-T2
technology will no longer be permitted to Amazon.it marketplace and any offers
for products not complying with this requirement will be removed.
To improve transparency in the navigation through the product pages in the
Consumer Electronics and Accessories category, it has become mandatory to add
information about the tuning technology in all the listing that will be loaded
in the inventory.
What has changed in terms of catalogue information (and their
loading) after the introduction of the new regulation? From 1 January, 2017, for every television offer you upload into your
Seller Central inventory list on Amazon.it, you will need to add your tuner
type as mandatory information, both for existing and new product pages. You
will be able to add them in the "Tuner Technology" field within the
catalogue section. We encourage you to get the information from your
suppliers or manufacturers.
Can I sell a TV that does not include DVB-T2 HEVC codec digital
tuner bundled with an external decoder that supports that format?
No, on Amazon.it, you will not be able to sell televisions without DVB-T2 HEVC
codec digital tuner in bundle with an external decoder. We encourage you to
use other sales channels for this type of offers.
Will it be possible to sell (for a limited period after 1 January,
2017) televisions without a DVB-T2 HEVC codec digital tuner to allow the
disposal of inventory?

set offline on Amazon.it. Please note that this is an Italian law only and
