Digital Switchover dates for our area
Monday, 11 October 2010
Dates for the digital switchover in our area, ie, the area covered by the Emley Moor transmitter, have been announced.
BBC Two analogue will be switched off on 7th September 2011 and the remaining channels will be switched off on 21st September 2011.
It was explained to the Hebden Bridge Web that the digital channels will not be fully availble to those who haven't yet got them until the second date, 21st September 2011.
We are promised that Freeview digital services will then be available to reach virtually all households in our area.
Any roof top aerial in good condition is capable of receiving analogue and digital TV services. You don't need to have a 'digital aerial' for switchover. If you have good analogue reception now it is unlikely you will need to replace your existing aerial.
Information about which digital options are available at any specific address is available from the Digital UK predictive postcode checker or from our advice line on 08456 50 50 50.
