Government green-light switchover plans

Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell has confirmed that digital switchover will start in 2008 in the Border ITV region and be completed by 2012. Elderly and disabled people will be offered help from both the Government and the BBC to convert to digital. Almost two thirds of households now have some form of digital TV on at least one TV, but there are still large parts of the country that cannot receive a Freeview signal.
