How do I Make The Switch?

If you currently receive just the traditional five UK channels (BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, Channel 4 and Five) – or only some of them – on any of your TV sets, you’ll need to think about your options for getting digital TV. Every TV set you want to keep watching in your home will need to be converted or upgraded to digital.

How do I get set for digital?
First you need to choose how you want to receive your TV signal;

Through an aerial (via either a digital box or digital TV)
Through a satellite dish
Through a cable
Through a telephone line

How do I know what to buy?
You don’t need to replace your existing TV unless you want to but you will need a digital box (via aerial, satellite dish or cable).

However if you are thinking of upgrading your current set consider getting a TV with a digital box built in (a “digital TV”) and look for the 'digital tick’ logo.
And don’t forget your video recorder: If you use a video (VCR) or a DVD recorder for recording you will still be able to record and play back tapes/DVDs as before. But, if you want to record one digital channel while you are watching another, you'll need a digital TV recorder with one or more digital tuners (Freeview Playback, Sky+ or ntl: Telewest TV Drive).

Look for the 'digital tick’ logo which certifies products and services that are designed to keep working after switchover.

Stores displaying ‘get set for digital’ will stock certified products.
