North Scotland goes digital

The final analogue television signals in the STV North TV region were switched off on 20 October, extending Freeview coverage to virtually all households in North Scotland for the first time.

Shortly after midnight, analogue BBC One, STV, Channel 4 and Five were turned off permanently at the Rosemarkie transmitter group, enabling extra channels to be broadcast from 12 local relay transmitters serving thousands of homes across the region.

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.
