digital-alThe UK’s largest digital switchover has begun across the London TV region. Analogue BBC Two was turned off on 4 April at Crystal Palace and other transmitters across the region, marking the start of a process that will see Freeview coverage boosted to reach all areas.

More than 400,000 viewers in former digital blackspots across Greater London and much of the Home Counties will now be able to receive Freeview channels for the first time.
Homes already watching Freeview will need to retune their TVs and boxes in order to regain their BBC services, which may currently be missing.
Digital switchover will be completed in the London region on 18 April when the remaining analogue channels will be switched off. Channel 5 and further Freeview channels from ITV and Channel 4 will then be available from local transmitters for the first time.
