Local Switchover


The switchover will not be the same for everyone, knowing which transmitter area is relevant to you will help you know what to expect and when. The different main transmitters and their local relay transmitters will not only have varying digital switchover dates but, depending on your location will be transmitting a different number of channels. The switchover dates for the Glasgow areas of Scotland are forecast for the earlier part of 2011.

It may be necessary to point your old or a replacement aerial towards a main transmitter rather than your old relay transmitter; this work should only be carried out by professionals.  Contact Satellite & Aerial Scotland for a full layman’s guide to the Digital Switchover and an estimate as to when your postcode will go ‘Digital’.
