end of tv times

Does switchover happen all at the same time for everyone receiving a signal from the Crystal Palace transmitter group?

Switchover for the Crystal Palace transmitter group is a two stage process taking place on Wednesday 04 April 2012 and Wednesday 18 April 2012. At each stage, engineering work is carried out at the Crystal Palace transmitter and each of its fifty four relay transmitters and services will be restored at different times depending on where you live. Once switchover is complete, all viewers will need to install or re-tune their Freeview TV or box.

At stage one, viewers receiving their signal from the Crystal Palace main transmitter and all the relays except Hemel Hempstead, Chepping Wycombe, Lea Bridge , Dorking and Skirmett relay transmitters will find that the analogue ITV will come back on air but will be found at button two (the old analogue BBC 2 button).

**Viewers receiving their signal from the Wooburn relay transmitter will find that the analogue BBC One will come back on air but will be found at button two (the old analogue BBC 2 button).

We advise you wait until the expected completion time for switchover before re-tuning, otherwise you may find you are missing channels that you will receive after switchover.
