Digital TV switchover on its way to Brid

BRIDLINGTON residents are being urged not to get left behind when the town becomes fully digital at the end of summer.

Research indicates that most residents already have digital televisions, but those still watching in analogue are being reminded to get ready for switchover, or face being left with a blank screen come September.

Digital UK and the Switchover Help Scheme has stepped up its communications campaigns across the region and viewers can check their switchover date and options for getting digital TV by using the postcode checker at or by ringing 08456 505050.

All televisions in Bridlington and the surrounding areas are expected to be fully digital from Wednesday, September 21.
