Viewers given deadline to go digital
20 December 2010, 05:50
The end of analogue TV in the Anglia region is drawing nearer as today marks 100 days to the first switchover in the area.
Viewers served by the Sandy Heath transmitter and it's relays, will begin the two-stage switch to digital-only television on 30 March 2011, completing the process on 13 April, 2011.
Firstly, BBC Two will go to digital and some new digital channels become available. This means that:
* If you haven’t switched, you’ll lose BBC Two
* If you have Freeview, BT Vision or Top Up TV you’ll need to re-tune your equipment
All the remaining analogue channels will switch to digital and the remaining digital channels will become available.
This means that:
* If you haven’t switched to digital, you will lose your TV service
* If you have Freeview, BT Vision or Top Up TV you’ll need to re-tune your equipment again
What happens between the two switchover dates?
If you have Freeview, BT Vision or Top-up TV for the first time, to watch the full range of channels between the two switchover stages you will need to switch between analogue and digital
