The “digital switchover” is the term used for the transition between analogue and digital TV broadcast.

At the moment both types of TV are being broadcast simultaneously but by 2012 the analogue broadcasts will be switched off and only digital channels will be available.

What this means in real terms is that by 2012 you will only be able to watch TV through your aerial with either an Integrated Digital Television (iDTV, basically a TV with a built-in digital Freeview tuner) or with a Freeview set-top box.

For reliable viewing of digital Freeview channels most properties will require a new aerial and cable, and in some areas almost every property will require a new aerial due to the way that the channels are broadcast.

Covid-19 Update

With so many of the community spending much more time at home than usual as well and needing to stay well informed, its never been more important than ever for your television, internet and sound systems to work as well as possible.

We are conducting business as usual unless one of our engineers shows any signs of the virus infection and is instructed to go into self isolation for two weeks.

Today we wrote new procedures to help protect our engineers and our customers against the spread of Covid-19. We wished to share them with you so that you can have confidence in our approach during this very strange time.
