Remaining analogue TV signals to be switched off tonight


Television in the Isle of Man will undergo a dramatic change overnight, as the digital switchover is completed.

The Island's transmitters will be turned off at midnight, worked on throughout the night, and switched back on at around 6am when they will be fully digital.

It means the three remaining analogue channels will be switched off, and all services will be available only to digital users.

The switchover began on June 18 when the analogue signal for BBC2 was replaced with the digital signal for a range of digital BBC channels.

In order to receive digital TV you must have a freeview box, a television with a built-in digital receiver or a satellite subscription.

Sarah Jane Gray from Digital UK says a greater range of channels will be available from tomorrow:
