Switchover starts in Northern Ireland on Wednesday 10th October 2012
If you live in the Brougher Mountain, Divis, or Limavady transmitter areas your digital switchover starts 10th October. If you already use Freeview you will need to retune - if you have never had Freeview, you will get the standard definition BBC services - switchover will complete in two weeks later.
On these maps, the full-service six-multiplex transmitters are shown with the "red star" Freeview logo. The public service three-multiplex masts are shown with a brown indicator. The green areas on the maps, are the areas where the strongest signal is from the shown transmitterregion, with the light blue showing overlap areas where signals from other regions are stronger.
On Wednesday 24th October 2012 will see the second stage of switchover, which provides the final Freeview configuration, including Freeview HD for all transmitters in this region - see UK Free TV soon for full details.
Viewers with Freeview HD (DVB-T2) equipment who receive a signal from the Brougher Mountain, Black Mountain and Carnmoney Hill will also receive the "Northern Ireland Mini-Multiplex" and will receive RTE One and RTE Two and TG4. See Northern Ireland "mini multiplex" (NIMM)
On this date, you will need, once again, to do a "first time installation" as indicated above.
