Channel Islands switchover date announced


The Channel Islands will switch to digital television on 17 November 2010, according to Digital UK.

On this date the four current analogue TV channels will be switched off permanently, allowing 50,000 households served by the Fremont Point transmitter group to receive around 15 Freeview digital channels for the first time, according to the switchover body.

Bill Taylor, Digital UK’s South West Regional Manager, said: “Today’s announcement paves the way for the biggest change in broadcasting in the Channel Islands since the introduction of colour.

“We are preparing for the end of the analogue TV era and the dawn of a fully digital age, in which everyone can enjoy extra choice and easier recording. Digital UK and the Switchover Help Scheme will ensure that people know about this important change and that advice and practical support is available for those who need it.”
