Scotland to go digital next year

Scotland will become the second country in the UK to go digital when switchover is completed in the Central Scotland region next summer.

Central Scotland will start switching to digital TV in May next year. The process will complete the following month in Edinburgh, when the final analogue TV signals will be turned off permenantly.

Paul Hughes, Digital UK's Scotland National Manager, said: "Today's announcement paves the way for a new era in Scottish broadcasting. Next summer, Scotland will enter a fully digital age in which everyone can enjoy more choice on TV."

Wales became the first all-digital UK nation on 31 March.
