Switchover begins in Westcountry

The next stage of the UK's digital switchover programme began today, when analogue broadcasts of BBC Two were switched off from the Beacon Hill transmitter and its relays. According to some reports, this has left around 1,500 people without the channel, but that's because they haven't bought any digital equipment (and not because of any problems with the switchover plan). The remaining channels currently being broadcast in analogue will be switched off on April 22.
