Six months until Cumbria Switchover

Cumbria is six months away from starting to switch to digital TV. Residents who watch Cumbria and Border ITV will start switching on 24 June 2009 with Granada ITV viewers starting the switch on 4 November 2009.

John Askew, Digital UK Border Regional Manager, said: "Most people in Cumbria 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 urged viewers in the region not to leave it too late to get advice or buy equipment. Viewers in the area who are unsure about the different ways to get digital television should speak to their local retailer, call Digital UK on 08456 50 50 50, or visit
