The ongoing campaign to switch British TV signals to digital is running so smoothly that the scheme is set to generate a multi-million pound surplus.
Online PR News – 28-August-2010 – – The ongoing campaign to switch British TV signals to digital is running so smoothly that the scheme is set to generate a multi-million pound surplus.
It was announced last month that around £55million of funding is set to be handed back to the Government once the digital switchover is completed in two years’ time.
It is thought that the leftover funding will be re-assigned to the roll-out of broadband internet connections in rural areas.
The digital switchover began in Britain in 2007, and the government aims to have the country’s analogue signal completely switched off by 2012. The switchover process involves replacing the analogue channels with free-to-air digital TV and radio services, i.e. Freeview.
Around 20 per cent of Britain has already been converted to the digital TV signal; north-west England, Wales, the West Country and the Border region. The other regions in England and Wales, as well as in Scotland and Northern Ireland, will be switched over to the digital signal by the end of 2012.
The digital switchover is arguably the biggest technological project currently running in the UK, and in many areas the switchover has been aided by the work of SCC International.
SCC International has been an established leader in the TV systems and commercial satellite industry since its incorporation in 1993.
