PARAS site Archive

PARAS was an informal group of industry insiders with detailed knowledge about the UK switch to digital TV, and how it is affecting the public. They had one thing in common: they were appalled at the way some traders and broadcasters are using the switch to digital TV as a means of misleading or even ripping off the public. The more vulnerable members of society seem to be the main targets. This is an archive of the website that existed for one reason only: to provide basic facts about the switch to digital TV in the hope that fewer people will be misled.
