Digital Switchover

Don’t forget to retune your Freeview box today when the analogue signal for BBC 2 is turned off as the first stage in the Digital Switchover process.

Across the North West around 7.2m TV sets in more than three million homes across the North West are affected.

 The move means that homes in some areas, including Glossop, can get Freeview for the first time (from the Glossop Transmitter). The remaining analogue channels - BBC1, ITV1, Channel 4 and Five - will be switched off on Wednesday 2nd December (when you will need to retune Freeview again)

For more information goto :

If you’ve not switched yet you can get more information from the above website or by phone on 08456 50 50 50

If you are older or disabled people and you’ve not yet accessed the help scheme and you need assistance switching to digital please contact the Switchover Help Scheme on 0800 408 7654.

The advice from the BBC etc is that all the (main) channels should be back on by the end of the day
