Viewers invited to digital drop in sessions
Digital Uk will be holding information events in Coll and Tiree
TV viewers in Coll and Tiree will have the opportunity to get tips on making the switch to digital television during two drop in sessions hosted by Digital UK.
The independent organisation leading the digital switchover has been holding information events across the south west Highlands and Islands, enabling viewers to get advice on the various ways they can go digital.
Members of the Digital UK team will be available to speak to the public and answer any questions they may have about switchover or the Switchover Help Scheme. The Digital UK drop in clinics will take place on:
- 12 May 2010: Arinagour Village Hall, between 3pm-8pm
- 13 May 2010: An Talla Community Hall, Tiree, between 2pm-5pm and 7pm-9pm
Households in the area are most likely to receive their TV signal from the Torosay transmitter group which serves South West Highlands and Islands. Viewers in these areas will make the switch to digital from 13 October 2010.
Russell Keene, Assistant National Manager in Scotland for Digital UK, said: “We’re really looking forward to visiting Coll and Tiree so that we can speak with viewers ahead of the digital switchover later this year. We want to ensure that people are aware of their switchover date and what their options are for going digital. We’ll also be able to highlight the support that’s available.”
Switchover will make digital terrestrial television (Freeview) available to virtually every home in Scotland – including, for the first time, viewers served by local ‘relay’ transmitters such as Glengorm. Viewers can find out which transmitter they’re likely to be watching, and what their options are for going digital, by entering their postcode at digitaluk.co.uk, or phoning the advice line on:
