Switchover begins in Torosay TV region

The South West Highlands and Islands in Scotland have completed the first stage of switchover as BBC Two was turned off permanently at the Torosay transmitter on 13 October.

Digital signals are now being broadcast from 22 relay transmitters serving homes across the region. These households will be able to receive Freeview for the first time, according to Digital UK.

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

The second and final stage of switchover takes place on 27 October when the remaining analogue channels will be switched off permanently. On this date, further Freeview channels from STV, Channel 4 and Five will also become available from relay transmitters.
