Digital TV switchover - Nine days to go
Less than ten days left until the analogue BBC2 signal is turned off for viewers in the Whitehaven TV area getting their signal from Bigrigg. A digital signal willbe provided instead which will require a digital TV or a set-top box.
Channel Five is now available on a digital signal from the Bigrigg transmitter - much to my children's delight when I took my own advice, tested out a set top box, and found that Channel Five did indeed come on. At the moment you have to swithc the set top box off again for the other channels, but not for much longer.
