Digital Switchover starting this week over the Brighton and Worthing regions!

The Digital switchover begins this week on Wednesday 7th March!

This is the first part of the digital switchover, this is when the analogue TV transmitters switchover in the Brighton and Worthing areas and the Meridian region will go completely digital.

Digital aerial installed in Brighton area.

For anyone who has an aerial facing Whitehawk Hill and Rowridge Transmitters (this covers most homes in the Brighton and Worthing areas) the TV switchover will happen in two stages, the first stage will be switched over on 7th March 2012 and the second stage on the 21st March 2012

On Wednesday the 7th March 2012 the BBC2 analogue will be switched off, this means that you will have to re-tune your digital TV system in order to watch the accessible channels. This will involve going into the menu settings on your TV/Freeview box and performing a channel re-scan (or auto tune), if you are not sure how to do this try checking the manual or calling Doddington Aerials & Satellites.

On Wednesday the 21st March 2012 the remaining analogue channels will be switched off in the Meridian TV region, and therefore you will no longer be able to watch TV via an analogue system. Once again you will have to re-tune your digital TV system for a second time to watch the additional channels.

If you are unsure if your TV is ready for the digital switchover or have any problems during the digital switchover then call Chris at Doddington Aerials & Satellites, 07794786718.
