Last day of digital switchover for the Meridian area

The last analogue television channels will be switched off in Kent and parts of East Sussex today. The change will affect more than 450,000 households.

Analogue BBC One, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 will be turned off permanently at the Dover and Bluebell Hill transmitter groups.

People will then have to use digital receivers to watch television, for example Freeview or a cable or satellite set top box. For more advice on the Digital Switchover and how it could affect you click here.
