Switchover begins at Skriaig

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Yesterday, work began on the Skriaig transmitter in Scotland, as part of the digital switchover programme being carried out by Digital UK.

For households which are still receiving the analogue TV signal, this first stage will mean that BBC 2 is taken off the air.

It acts as a warning that the full signal is about to be shut down permanently and the householder should begin to make provisions to switch to digital TV.

The Skriaig transmitter serves the following relays: Scoval HP, Scoval VP, Penifiler, Duncraig, Attadale, Kilbride South Uist, Uig, Ardintoul, Tarbert Harris, Bruernish, Inverarish and Kylerhea.

It is estimated that the switchover will be complete by the end of the month.

This is when all analogue TV signals are switched off permanently and digital TV takes over.
