Will my digital equipment continue to work at switchover?

At switchover, the Freeview signal will be improved to ensure viewers get clear pictures which are less susceptible to interference and picture break-up. This change in format will occur in line with the switchover timetable and is approved by Ofcom on a region-by-region basis.

TV equipment which carries the “digital tick” logo is compatible with the improved signal but some early digital boxes (in particular ONDigital and ITV Digital devices) and digital televisions are not.

Owners of affected digital boxes are advised to replace them with a product carrying the “digital tick”. Affected televisions can be upgraded using a digital box.

A list of affected products is available from the Digital UK website (see link below).
