Digital Switchover

This service is not run by the Council and information should be used for contact purposes only

Also known as:- TV Digital Switchover

Service Description: The TV digital Switchover will take place on the Island on the 7th and 21st March 2012. After these dates the traditional TV signal (analogue channels) will be switched off in the area. If anyone doesn't have digital TV by this time they will lose their TV Channels.

There is a Switchover Help Scheme which offers practical support to older and disabled people to convert one TV in their home to digital. For more information on this scheme please see the FAQ's.

Digital UK is responsible for leading the UK digital TV Switchover. They offer independent advice on equipment, aerials and re-tuning. They also provide an online postcode checker with up to date and reliable information on the TV signal in your home.
