Getting set for digital Television in the UK is going digital, bringing us all more choice and new services. Digital UK, the independent organisation set up by the public-service broadcasters, is here to help.

What is the digital TV switchover?

Starting in 2007 and ending in 2012, TV services in the UK will go completely digital, TV region by TV region. This process is called digital switchover.

After switchover, all television in the UK will be digital. The UK’s old television broadcast signal (known as “analogue”) is being switched off and replaced with a “digital” signal. Any TV set or video recorder that’s not converted to digital when the switchover takes place will no longer receive TV programmes.

What are the benefits of digital TV?
Compared to traditional TV, it brings many new ways to enjoy your TV:

Extra TV channels as standard
Subscription channels
Improved quality
New features
Access services
How does it work?
With digital TV, sound and pictures from the broadcaster are converted into ‘bits’ of information and sent through an aerial, satellite, telephone line or cable. This digital signal is then turned back into pictures and sound by a digital box or a digital TV set.

Why are we switching to digital TV?

What equipment will I need to get digital television?
You do not need to replace your existing television sets to receive digital services. You will need to get some additional equipment that will connect to your existing television.

Digital Terrestrial TV: viewers will need a digital set top box or a new television with built in digital adapter (known as an integrated digital TV, or IDTV). Some viewers may also need to replace their aerial.
Digital Satellite TV: viewers will need a satellite receiver and dish, provided by the satellite broadcaster.
Digital Cable TV: a connection to a cable system and indoor decoder box is provided by the cable company.
