I've issued a news release today about my concerns over the initial preparations for the Digital TV switchover from analogue.
Although there is some initial TV advertising by Digital UK it is not at all detailed and doesn't answer many of the basic questions people are asking about how they should prepare for the loss of analogue signals. The information thus far is patchy and confusing for elderly people in particular.
Most people in the West End and others in parts of the southern end of Dundee and the Charleston area had been denied digital terrestrial services in advance of the analogue switch off because the Tay Bridge and Camperdown television relay transmitters are not carrying Freeview services as yet, has not helped in terms of public awareness locally about digital terrestrial television.
