100 days until Bristol and Bath Switchover

Digital UK is urging residents of Bristol and Bath to prepare for the switch to digital on 24 March 2010.

The Switchover body is taking to the road in an 'analogue detector van' to find viewers who risk losing TV channels after the region completes switchover.

After switchover, around 150,000 homes served by local relay transmitters across Bristol, parts of Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire will be able to receive Freeview for the first time, seeing the number of channels available through an aerial increase from four to around 15.

Anyone who hasn't converted their TV to digital after switchover will be faced with a blank screen.

David Farwig, Digital UK's Assistant Manager for the South West, said: "Most people have already made the switch to digital TV but with just 100 days to go we're urging anyone still watching analogue to prepare for 24 March. Any viewers who need help with switchover can visit the Digital UK website or call our advice line."
