Just after midnight on April 18, more than 75 years of analogue TV broadcasts in London came to a close with the launch of a new high-power digital TV transmission service by Arqiva from the iconic Crystal Palace broadcast tower.
Arqiva CEO, John Cresswell said: “This is a broadcasting landmark and digital switchover is an amazing engineering and technical feat and a fantastic story of British success. The UK has an amazing record of producing fantastic television. Freeview is the platform of choice across the UK and the investment we have just made will ensure it continues to be relevant for the next 20 years. ”
Northern Ireland and North East England will be switched off before the end of the year.
