The digital switchover
The digital TV switchover is the process of turning off the UK's analogue TV signal and replacing it with a digital signal.
That means that between now and March 2012, television services in the UK will go completely digital, TV region by TV region. Some areas have already switched over to digital, and the whole country will switch by 2012.
Why is it happening?
The digital switchover is Government policy. Analogue signals are being turned off to allow for more powerful digital broadcasts, bringing digital
TV to the quarter of households who can't currently receive it through their aerials. Switching analogue signals off also frees up space for more
services, such as TV on demand, high definition TV pictures and TV via your mobile phone.
What is digital TV?
Digital TV means you'll get at least 40 channels - including the five terrestrial channels - plus new features like on-screen listings, interactivity, audio description and subtitling for people with visual and hearing impairments.
What will happen when my area goes digital?
When the analogue television signal is switched off in your area, TVs that haven't been enabled to receive digital signals will no longer work. It'll
affect all TVs in your house and in cars also - not just the main one!
How to get digital TV
If you've already got digital TV in your car, you're all sorted - lucky you!
If any of your TV equipment isn't yet enabled for digital broadcasts, you'll need to convert or upgrade it to receive digital signals.
