Anglia switchover gets underway

Viewers in Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire have completed the first stage of the digital switchover.

BBC Two was turned off permanently at the Sandy Heath transmitter in the Anglia TV Region on 30 March, boosting Freeview coverage to reach more than 45,000 homes across the region for the first time.

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 13 April 2011, when the remaining

analogue channels will be switched off permanently. On this date, further Freeview channels from

ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 will also become available from relay transmitters for the first time.
