published on UK Free TV

The final weeks for analogue television in Scotland commences today, with the first step of switchover for two transmitter groups in West Scotland.

From today you will need to retune your Freeview box if you use the Darvel or Rosneath transmitter. You MAY find that some very old equipment will no longer work - TVs and boxes that do not support the 8k-mode.

If you use the Ardentinny, Ardnadam, Arrochar, Ayr South, Blackwaterfoot, Bowmore, Campbeltown, Carradale, Catrine, Claonaig, Dunure, Garelochhead, Girvan, High Keil, Holmhead, Kirkconnel, Kirkmichael, Kirkoswald VP, Lethanhill, Lochgoilhead, Lochwinnoch, Millburn Muir, Muirkirk, New Cumnock, Port Ellen, Portnahaven, Sorn, Troon, Wanlockhead relay transmitters, you will no longer be able to watch BBC TWO on analogue from today, but you should be able now to use a Freeview box or TV set to watch ALL BBC services (apart from the two HD channels).

In two weeks time, on Wednesday 25th May 2011, the final switchover step will see the closure of all analogue services and the introduction of high power full Freeview for Darvel and Rosneath viewers, Freeview Light from all relay transmitters, plus the start of the Freeview HD service BBC One HD, BBC HD, STV and Channel 4 HD) on all the above transmitters.
