Digital TV - Switching over is easier than you think
Had a good meeting with the Digital UK switchover guys yesterday, and all looks well for the Central regional switchover planned for 2011. One region ‘Copeland Cumbria’ has already gone through switchover and everyone else will be learning from their efforts. If you fancy a good read, (or just the summary) check out the report here - One interesting fact I learned from the meeting was that the oldest TV that has been successfully switched over was 78 years old (all it needed was an updated aerial). – there are however con-men galore, looking for the opportunity to swindle dosh out of our old and unsuspecting. Switchover is far easier than most people think, a twenty quid freeview box from your local supermarket will usually do the trick. So get out there and sort your Grannies and Grandpa’s out, before the con-men do!
