Dundee becomes Scotland's first digital city

Dundee has now completed digital switchover, making it the first Scottish city to go digital.

On 18 August, analogue BBC One, STV, Channel 4 and Five were turned off permanently at the Angus transmitter group, enabling extra Freeview channels to be broadcast from 23 local relay transmitters serving homes in Dundee, Angus, Perth and parts of Fife.

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.

Viewers in some areas may find their digital TVs or boxes load more than one regional service.

Advice on prioritising the preferred regional service is available from Digital UK.
