digital-alThe timetable for Scotland to make the switch to digital TV has been announced by Digital UK. Scottish Borders became the first region to complete the change last month. Switchover will now progress to south-west Scotland next year, continuing throughout 2010 and finishing in Lothian, parts of Edinburgh and Fife by June 2011.

Switchover will make digital terrestrial television available to virtually every home in Scotland -including, for the first time, hundreds of thousands of viewers served by local relay transmitters.
Paul Hughes, Digital UK’s National Manager for Scotland said: “Today we can provide a detailed timetable for switchover in Scotland. By the time the whole process is complete in June 2011, almost every Scottish household will have a choice of ways to receive digital TV.”
“As part of our information campaign we’ll be writing to every household and sending our switchover roadshow to over 60 towns and cities across Scotland.”
