Digital TV switchover information booklet on its way to every Irish home

Dublin, Tuesday 19th June, 2012: Minister for Communications, Energy & Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte T.D. today announced that every home in the country will receive a Digital TV Switchover Information booklet as part of the Department’s efforts to ensure that no one gets left behind when the analogue TV network in Ireland is switched off on Wednesday 24th October.

The information booklet is being distributed from today to remind some 200,000 households who still need to make the switch to digital TV of what they need to do to make the switch to digital TV and that these options are all available now. A further 250,000 households rely on the analogue TV signal for secondary TV sets.

All those still using the old analogue TV network will have noticed a ‘bug’ on the bottom corner of the screen which will be a permanent reminder and countdown to analogue switchover date, October 24th. This ‘bug’ will remain on all analogue TV screens until October 24th or until those TV sets have been switched to the digital network.
