Digital Switchover

Honestly - who cares?

Freeview costs about £20. I know it's not a busy news day, but still!

It would be interesting to see if the digital switchover is genuinely something that real people are concerned about. It will also be interesting to see how much money the government will make from selling the newly free airspace.

Hopefully it won't be some more telecoms nonsense and it will allow a nice big wifi network!


  • I'm not sure I agree.

    They'll be some people (can I stereotype and say pensioners?) who are still unaware of the switchover and who will be wondering why their TV signal has disappeared.

    While £20 isn't a lot of money to most people, it will be to some. And even if it's not, £20 will only buy a cheap digital box that will probably freeze over and not give the quality that analogue did. Plus there's things like video machines with dual tuners that people many have spent money on and won't function anymore.

    I'm not saying the switchover is a bad thing, but I think it's newsworthy.
