The spread of digital TV is moving faster than in a lot of other countries like the US, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan, according to a recent report from the regulator Ofcom.
The study also releases some interesting figures such as the fact that around eighty six per cent of the households in the UK can now receive digital TV and, not surprisingly, the regulator feels that the average UK viewer is getting a good deal.
However, the entire country is not set to switchover until 2012.
The last area, the south east of England, is the last to be switched over to digital, while at the same time it has the largest populated area in the UK.
The study also mentioned that around thirty per cent of the UK viewers have a digital video recorder too, but the main point about this is missing, the difference between those who use satellite and those that use Freeview.
