TEN DAYS TO GO until digital switchover completes
Just ten days from now, in the early hours of 14th November, all remaining analogue signals will be turned off for terrestial TV viewers who get their signal from the Bigrigg transmitter just South of Whitehaven or the Gosforth and Eskdale transmitters.
This means that the majority of Copeland will only have digital signals. Some people in the Parton area served by the Bleach Green transmitter (including some of my Bransty ward), others served by the St Bees transmitter, and a large part of South Copeland around Millom, are not yet affected. However, like everyone else in the country, they will go digital too within the next few years.
If you are affected by this and need help, you can call DIgital UK on 0845 6 505050.
