Eitshal goes digital

All analogue TV channels in Lewis, Wester Ross, north west Sutherland and parts of Harris and Skye have now been switched off permanently as the final stage of switchover was completed across the region.

Shortly after midnight, analogue BBC One, STV, Channel 4 and Five were turned off permanently at the Eitshal transmitter group, enabling extra channels to be broadcast from eight local relay transmitters.

The changes also affect existing Freeview viewers who may find some of their channels missing. The services have moved to new frequencies and can be restored by retuning Freeview TVs and boxes.
