What is digital switchover?
The UKs Digital Switchover commenced in 2008 and is due to end on 24 October 2012 in Northern Ireland. Once completed, all TV services throughout the UK will be completely digital. The old analogue channels will be switched off.
Once completed, digital TV will be norm for everyone.
The Digital switchover has changed the current broadcasting system to digital. This has encouraged people to upgrade their TV's and recording equipment to receive digital TV.
