Isle of Man to switch in six months

The Isle of Man is less than six months away from starting the switch to digital TV on 18 June 2009.

Sarah-Jane Gray of Digital UK said: "Most viewers in the Isle of Man already have a choice of ways to get digital TV, and after switchover almost everyone will be able to get it through an aerial. There will be plenty of assistance for those who need it, including the Switchover Help Scheme and charity partnerships formed by Digital UK."

Digital UK has published a message to all the island's residents: don't leave it too late to get advice or buy equipment. If you are unsure about the different ways to get digital television, speak to your local retailer, call Digital UK on 08456 50 50 50, or visit

The Douglas transmitter group that serves the Isle of Man will complete the switch to digital on 16 July 2009.
