digital-alShortly after midnight on Tuesday, analogue BBC One, BBC Two, Channel Television and Channel 4 were turned off permanently at the Fremont Point transmitter, allowing Freeview digital channels to be broadcast across the islands for the first time.
Islanders switching to Freeview need to tune in their digital tvs and boxes once signals are available in their area (follow guide below).

The switch has meant virtually all households across the islands will be able to receive Freeview digital channels for the first time and will see their choice of terrestrial channels increase from four to around 15.
Bill Taylor, Digital UK’s Regional Manager in the Channel Islands, said: “This is an historic day for TV in the Channel Islands as we say goodbye to the old analogue system forever. Viewers have responded extremely well and many are enjoying the benefits of digital TV for the first time.”
