Analogue switch off

22nd October 2019

If you have not yet purchased a digital tv or set-top tuner, as part of Jerseys analogue/digital ‘switch-over’ completed in November 2010, you will need to do so because our analogue television signals are finally being turned off.

Unfortunately, maintaining this ageing equipment has become increasingly difficult and, as a result, the analogue terrestrial television distribution equipment is being decommissioned and will be switched-off on the 13th December 2019.

To continue watching TV via an aerial after switchover, viewers will need to convert their analogue television using a digital box or make sure they have an integrated digital tv set, for further information please see the on-line ‘Digital Switchover FAQ’ sheet published on the BBC Home page on the 13th November 2014.
