Jo has encouraged East Dunbartonshire residents to get set for the digital switchover in June.
The Black Hill transmitter, which services the Glasgow area, will switch over from analogue to digital signal in two stages on 8 and 22 June. Once the switchover completes, the whole of Scotland will have joined the digital age.
Jo recently met with Russell Keene, National Manager at Digital UK to discuss how local people can find out more about the switchover. This week Digital UK has sent out a guide booklet to all households in East Dunbartonshire to raise awareness about the impending changes and offer practical support and advice. An information roadshow with practical demonstrations of digital TV equipment will also visit Morrisons in Bishopbriggs on 27th April.
The Switchover Help Scheme will also offer equipment, installation and aftercare and extra support to older and disabled viewers to assist with the transition.
Commenting, Jo said:
“The countdown to the digital TV switchover in East Dunbartonshire is on, so it is important that local people are aware and ready for the change. Digital UK has assured me that there many ways to find out about what the switchover means for you, the different ways of getting digital services and when to retune your existing services if you have Freeview.
