This paper presents an analysis of the characteristics of the DVB-T2 standard to deliver 3DTV contents (3DTV). The work has been based on the current state-of-the-art developments in technologies that enable 3DTV delivery, from production to displays, with special emphasis on formats and coding efficiencies. Based on bitrate and format requirements the capacity of DVB-T2 is investigated, proposing two roll-out scenarios and discussing the associated DVB-T2 configuration parameters. The target receivers are both fixed and portable, and different backward compatibility problems and solutions are highlighted. The result of this work is an estimation of the number and type of services (both 2D and 3D) that this standard will be able to deliver in the mid term future as 2D HD and 3D services become commercially available.
