The digital switchover is well under way. Have you switched over yet? If you’re not sure, Digital UK have a location checker on their website, which tell you if you’ve switched over, or if you haven’t, the year in which it’s scheduled. The switchover has been rolling out to various parts of the country since 2007; we’re currently about 60% through the process – it finishes in 2012.This means that by the time the London Olympics roll round, wherever you live in the country, there’ll only be a digital TV signal. Make sure you’re all set for the digital switchover…
- If you’ve got a really old, non-digital TV, you’ve got two options. The first is to upgrade to a digital model.
- The second option, if you’re really attached to your non-digital telly, and don’t want to pay a monthly subscription, is a Freeview box. Just make sure you’ve got a SCART lead to connect it!
- If you receive your TV signal in another way, for instance via satellite if you have Sky, or via cable if you are with Virgin Media or BT, then the switchover won’t affect you, and you’re good to go.
- If you want a cool set-up to match, and like impressing your friends when they come to your house, a TV bracket is a perfect way to do that.
