ofcomMedia regulator Ofcom has finally outlined its schedule for switching off the UK’s analogue TV signal. It said a region-by-region process would start in 2008, with analogue transmitters being gradually turned off.

In order to reach its proposed December 31, 2012 deadline for the final switch-over, it is proposing a phased switchover by ITV region rather than geography over the course of four years. Viewers in London and the Channel Islands will be among the last to have to make the digital transition.
The Government is now considering Ofcom’s timetable before deciding whether to give it the go-ahead.
