Digital Switchover

Non-digital signals in the West TV region are being switched off at the Mendip transmitter.

It means from Wednesday (March 24th) morning couldn't watch the channel without Sky, free view or cable.
The rest of the channels followed on April 7th when analogue signals were turned off for good. Most people needed to retune their freeview box.

Digital UK's South West regional manager Bill Taylor told Heart "Lot's of people think, quite understandably, that I've got a free view box so I don't need to do anything. You do. If you're watching any TV that gets signal through an ariel you need to do something today and on the 7th of April for the big digital TV switchover."

For people who have any problems when re-tuning he added:

" When the whole network goes live with digital the equipment can get a bit confused about which transmitter it should pick up a signal from. We can fix that, we can advise people how to tweak their equipment to get digital TV. Just give Digital UK a call if you have any worries."
