The Switchover Help Scheme

TV is going digital all over the UK and the traditional analogue TV signal will be switched off in our area throughout February and March 2012 so anyone who has not got digital TV already will lose their service at that time.  The Switchover Help Scheme has therefore been specifically designed to make it easy for older (over 75’s) and disabled people to make the switch to digital on one of their TV sets.  Eligible people are being written to during August and will be able to apply for help by returning a form or phoning a freephone number (see below).  The cost is £40 for most eligible people but some will receive a free service if they are on forms of pension credit or income support.
