Why a switchover deadline?

deadlineThe UK Government has made the Digital Switchover one of its policies and has implemented a strategy and guidelines that will allow everyone to access an affordable basic service through their aerial; upgrades and new equipment may be needed to receive all the channels available.  Vulnerable groups will be provided with practical and financial assistance, those eligible will be contacted directly; this policy will ensure no one is left behind when the switchover takes place.

The old analogue system also uses up a lot of the broadcasting space available, after the switchover room will be made for the developing technologies of wireless broadband, High Definition Television (HDTV) and connections to mobile phones.
Satellite & Aerial Scotland will continue to research and develop to keep in line with these growing technologies in order to provide its customers with the best equipment and services available.
