Retailers give "shocking" Switchover advice

An investigation by Trading Standards in Dorset has revealed that some retailers are offering "shocking" advice to customers wanting to switch to digital. Nine out of the fourteen aerial installers they contacted gave bad or misleading advice, while one store told customers they would need to purchase a £1,000 television in order to receive digital TV. Dorset will begin the switchover process next year.
