Television in the UK is going digital, bringing us all
more choice and new services. Starting in late 2007
and ending in 2012, television services in the UK
will go completely digital, TV region by TV region.
Please see overleaf to find out when your area
switches to digital.
Digital UK is the independent, non-profit
organisation leading the process of digital TV
switchover in the UK. Digital UK provides impartial
information on what people need to do to prepare for
the move to digital, and when they need to do it.
How the switchover affects your TV equipment:
Your new TV has a digital tuner built in, which
means it is ready to receive the Freeview signal by
simply plugging it into your aerial socket (check if
you can get digital TV through your aerial now, or
whether you'll have to wait until switchover, at
www.digitaluk.co.uk).
When the TV switchover happens in your area, there
are at least two occasions when you will need to retune your TV in order to continue receiving your
existing TV channels, and also to pick up new ones.
34 GB
Digital UK, the body leading the digital TV
switchover, will advise you when you need to retune during the switchover.
If you choose to connect your TV to satellite or cable
with a digital box then it will not be affected by
switchover, and you won't need to re-tune.
