West Midlands, Stoke & Newcastle and Yorkshire go digital

Viewers in the West Midlands, Stoke & Newcastle and Yorkshire TV regions have completed the switch to digital television.

Analogue BBC One, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 were switched off for good in these areas on 21 September, enabling extra channels to be broadcast from local relay transmitters serving thousands of homes.

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

Viewers in some areas may also find their digital TVs or boxes load more than one regional service. Advice on prioritising the preferred regional service is available from Digital UK.
