Digital TV Switchover

Throughout the spring and summer of 2009, the analogue TV signal is to be switched off, and digital switched on.

If you receive your signal from Redruth the change-over is scheduled to take place on July 8, if from Caradon Hill it will take place on August 12. Which means that if you have an old television you probably need to do something about it now if you want to be able to watch it this time next year.

There is lots of help available to give you the facts about what you need. Basically you need to either buy yourself a digital box to go with your television, or pay for a monthly subscription to Sky, BT Vision or Virgin Media.
 
Unfortunately, it is not totally straightforward as a digital box with an aerial does not seem to be a guarantee of good reception. To find out which option would be best for you either go to Teletext 284 to find out whether your current aerial will continue to work after the switchover, or check on www.digitaluk.co.uk and type in your postcode, and they will tell you which option will give you the best reception.

The switchover is going to cost no matter what, but there is help available for those who need it most. If you are entitled to Disability Living Allowance (or equivalent), registered blind or partially sighted or are 75 years old or over, you have should have been contacted by the Help Scheme to see if you need assistance to switch to digital. If they haven't already contacted you their telephone number is 0800 40 85 900 or check our their website at www.helpscheme.co.uk

Anyone, whether eligible for the Help Scheme or not, can find out further information by telephoning 08456 50 50 50
