Digital television switchover is coming to our area this Wednesday, 8 June 2011. Everybody needs to be ready as Celtic Music Radio has been annoucing on-air.
You can listen again to an interview with Luke McCulloch, Manager, Nations, BBC Help Scheme about Digital Switchover and the Switchover Help Scheme, which can help you convert to digital if you are aged 75+ or eligible disabled.

Do you need help in switching to digital TV?
If you are 75 or over, registered blind or partially sighted or eligible for disability benefits, the Switchover Help Scheme offers practical help to convert one of your TV sets to digital. To get the help you are entitled to, you need to reply to the letter the Help Scheme has sent you.
It is not too late. Fill out the application form and return it to us or phone our free Help Scheme number 0800 40 87 656.
The Switchover Help Scheme is run by the BBC under agreement with the government. For further information visit the website: helpscheme.co.uk

BBC Two Scotland will also shutdown analogue transmissions on the same day. All analogue television transmissions shutdown on Wednesday 22 June from Black Hill and its relay transmitter sites.
