We’ve all gone digital now


Digital TV switchover across the Midlands is now complete, extending Freeview coverage to more than 400,000 extra viewers. Every Midlands viewer is now digital and most found the change straightforward.

We wish to thank everyone who helped to make the transition to digital television successful. It really was a community effort.

More than 225,000 older and disabled people have so far contacted the BBC-run Switchover Help Scheme to take up the practical help that’s been offered.

Eligible people in the Central TV region can still apply until October 28. For information about Help Scheme eligibility phone 0800 40 85 900 or visit helpscheme.co.uk.

Readers should remember to retune their Freeview box occasionally to make sure they’re receiving the latest services. If you need general advice about switchover you can still get in touch with Digital UK’s advice line on 08456 50 50 50, or visit digitaluk.co.uk.
