What does going Digital mean?
The existing analogue TV signal will be switched off and replaced by a new stronger digital signal. It means that almost everyone will be able to receive digital TV through an aerial (Freeview).
What are the benefits?
Digital TV offers new ways to enjoy your TV, primarily a greater choice of TV channels. Households are able to received on average 40 TV channels for free with digital TV.
How will the switchover affect me?
Most of Rutland is served by the Waltham transmitter which is switching over in 2 stages on 17th August 2011 and 31st August 2011.
On 17th August, BBC channels will be switched off and you will need to return your digital equipment to pick up the available channels. On 31st August the remaining analogue channels are switched off and you will need to retune your digital equipment again to pick up additional channels. To keep your TV service you will need to convert your TV to a digital TV before this date.
