ARE YOU READY FOR DIGITAL?

 WHAT IS THE DIGITAL SWITCHOVER?
 
The United Kingdom is going DIGITAL, this is the biggest thing to happen in the world of home Television since the introduction of colour. The Digital Switchover is a government iniative to allow almost everyone to take advantage of the benefits of Digital. Between now and the summer of 2012, region by region all over the UK old analogue transmitters will be converted over to the new digital signal.
With Digital you will still be able to enjoy the five traditional channels as well as receiving over 40 more! To keep your television service all you need to do is to convert your television to Digital before the switchover date in your region. If you do not have a television with an intergrated digital tuner then this can be done by installing a Freeview, Freesat or Sky system.
Digital terrestrial television has been operating in the UK for several years- whats more you can start enjoying all the benfits right away!
  • Better Television reception and picture and sound quality
  • Larger range of channels and the introduction to interactive services
  • More people will be able to receive Digital TV services
  • More services will become avaliable such as High Definition terrestrial television.
