Report on Whitehaven ASO published
Digital UK has just published its report on the first UK digital switchover, which took place at Whitehaven in Copeland Cumbria at the end of 2007.
It says that the switchover process was a success with residents well informed and prepared. The switchover process was said by most residents to have been straightforward and they are pleased with the new services available on the digital platform.
Residents also converted 95% of their second sets for DTT by the end of December but there were a few issues that did not go so well.
These issues highlighted the need for better communications between tenants and landlords, improved explanations of the benefits of the Help Scheme, and a shorter transition period in the two-staged switchover process.
A total of 72 UK areas will switch-off analogue services in the next 4 years. The full report can be accessed by clicking on the following source link.
