Digital Switchover: Suffolk And Norfolk

23 November 2011, 05:00

It's the final day of the digital switchover forSuffolk and Norfolk so more people will now have access to freeview channels.

The Tacolneston transmitter controlling Norfolk and the rest of Suffolk finishes switching today meaning the whole region will be digital.

The Sudbury transmitter began switching to digital in its first phase on the 6th of July, affecting areas around Suffolk, including Felixstowe, Woodbridge and parts of Ipswich.

At the moment, any remaining analogue viewers only receive four or five channels but after the end of the switchover viewers will lose all those channels. However, anyone who has made the switchover will be able to get at least fifteen channels.

Satellite and cable viewers will not be affected by the changes but those who don't either own a television with a digital tuner built in or a set top box which will convert their television. Every television in the house will be affected.
