With the buzz surrounding advancements in HD televisions and the introduction of 3D pictures for you to enjoy in your living room, you could be forgiven for forgetting about the digital switchover. The digital switchover will see the existing analogue signal being turned off to be replaced by a stronger, better quality digital signal. It is important that you and your television are prepared for this, which is where this expert believes they can come in order to provide you with digital TV Rugby.

If you do not have the necessary digital system in place, whether that is through the free or monthly subscription services, you will be left without a picture coming through to your TV. As specialist digital TV installers Rugby, they can make sure that your TV has been converted before the switchover date arrives in your area.

Who is behind it?

The Government are behind the digital switchover which began in 2008 after they set up a detailed ‘Television Action Plan’ which covered the tasks required for a decision to be made on the timescale for completion of the whole project. With an analysis of the costs, benefits and difficulties in relation to the switchover, a professional qualification was created for members of the public to find a trusted and competent installer to carry out the work.

Why is it happening?

One of the main reasons behind the digital switchover is so that you can receive a better quality television picture. Furthermore, switching to a digital signal uses less broadcast space which subsequently creates room for advancements in wireless broadband, local television services and HDTV.

What can I expect?

With digital television, you will have a greater choice of channels to find your favourite programmes, have the ability to see on screen listings of what is on and which channels they can be viewed, along with the option for additional channels such as specific movie or sports stations.

This particular specialist is committed to being on hand to supply you with all the advice as to which digital service is likely to best to suit your needs, before completing the installation to the highest of standards to ensure that your television and aerial is set up to receive the digital signal.

With every television in the country set to receive its signal via a digital receiver by the end of 2012, a digital specialist can make sure that you can still enjoy the programmes you love through digital TV Rugby after the switchover is completed.
