Dickson Welcomes Digital TV Switchover Success

Alliance Party East Antrim MLA, Stewart Dickson, has expressed his delight that the Digital TV Switchover is now complete, extending Freeview coverage to thousands of homes previously unable to receive digital television through an aerial.

Mr Dickson said: “Several constituents have called into my offices seeking assistance and I am pleased that we were able to ‘put them on the right channel’ by directing them to the appropriate digital scheme service.

“Whilst I am advised that viewers across East Antrim responded extremely well and coped with these changes without any great difficulty, I take this opportunity to advise anyone still experiencing reception issues or with setting up and using digital equipment, to get in touch with Digital UK via their Website (digitaluk.co.uk) or their Advice Line on 08456 50 50 50.

“Time is running out for eligible people, who have not yet had their televisions adapted, to apply for help. They only have until 24 November to take up the practical help that’s been on offer to them, so I would encourage them to ‘switch on’ as soon as possible and make that call or log on to the Website for further information and support.”
