Unofficial Guide to the UK Digital TV Switchover

The digital switchover has now completed. FrequencyCast created an audio guide to the Switchover, to help those switching.

Digital Switchover complete!

The digital switchover completed in the UK in October 2012. This page was written whilst the switchover was taking place, and has been left here for those looking for information on the digital switchover.


FrequencyCast is an Internet Radio Show that covers technology and digital TV in the UK.

At the start of 2008, we ran a poll to see how well the UK Government's Digital Switchover message was getting through. Within two weeks, we had over 400 responses. Over 60% of respondents indicated that they're ready, but 39% are not yet prepared for the switch-off that'll happen by the end of 2012. Worryingly, 9% of respondents ticked the "What is the Digital Switchover?" option!

Our podcast team has put together an Unofficial Audio Guide covering the digital switchover, and answers some of the most common questions we've had from listeners.
