Understanding the UK Digital Switchover

Advertising,Art and Culture,Business
Starting in 2007 the entire UK began to be switched over from analogue television signals to digital television signals. In order to continue to receive television programming it will become necessary to purchase a Freeview box that will pick up the digital television signals. The switchover is scheduled to be completed in 2012. At that time the entire UK will have access to digital television through the Freeview receivers. One thing to keep in mind is that as your region makes the switch to digital you will have to re-tune the Freeview box. For specific instructions on how to re-tune your box you can visit the Freeview website.

Why is there a switchover to digital in the first place?

Well for one digital signal allow for a stronger, clearer television signal. Another benefit is that digital signals take up less space on the signal spectrum which allows for more room to be available for wireless, broadband, and high definition television streams. If you are wondering when the digital switchover will affect where you live, you can visit the Freeview website and put in your postcode and find out. Currently the switchover is on schedule which means that the southern portions of the UK should be switching over next year.


There are many benefits to the digital switchover beyond freeing up space on the broadcast spectrum. Viewers will have access to more channels and the channels will come through with better picture quality and enhanced audio. Interactivity is another great feature that was not available with analogue signals. Certain programmes make extensive use of this interactivity and many more will begin to start to use this feature as the digital switchover reached its completion. More programs will also be able to add features for those who suffer from audio or visual impairments.

If you are headed out shopping to prepare for the digital switchover it is good to know what to look for, so that the television you buy will be compatible with the digital signals. One feature that appears on many products that are compatible with the digital switchover is a “digital tick.” This symbol has been added so that it is easier for consumers to note the kind of product they need to purchase. Whether you are looking for a new television or a receiver you should look for the “digital tick” symbol to ensure that the product will work after the switchover.

The digital switchover will provide a multitude of benefits as it nears its completion. In order to benefit from it you will need to make some purchases if you have not already done so. HD televisions are now at a price where almost anyone can afford one, so if it is time for a new set then go ahead and upgrade to HD knowing that you will not need to switch again any time soon. A Freeview or Freeview+ HD box will allow you to enjoy all the great programming that is available on the digital broadcasting spectrum.
