The digital switchover has been cited as the main reason for a record number of TV sales in Britain last year.
Online PR News – 16-April-2010 – – The digital switchover has been cited as the main reason for a record number of TV sales in Britain last year.
Around ten million new television sets were bought in the UK in 2009, according to the market research firm GfK.
The ongoing digital switchover across Britain, along with falling retail prices has encouraged many people to invest in a new television set.
The digital switchover began in Britain in 2007 and the process involves replacing the analogue channels with free-to-air digital TV and radio services, i.e. Freeview.
The analogue signal has already been switched off in the Granada, Border and West Country regions in England and it is anticipated that the whole of Britain will be switched over to the digital signal by the end of 2012.
Once the switchover is complete, viewers will need either a set-top box or a digital television (as most new TV sets are) in order to continue receiving a picture.
