Digital age 'may mean no TV for poor'

Sat 18 Sep 2004

MANY low-income families across the south of Scotland will be without 
television three years from now as the cost of converting sets from 
analogue to digital reception will be beyond their financial reach, 
it has been claimed.

A consultation document published by Ofcom, the media regulator, has 
confirmed that the Border ITV area is in line to become the first 
region in the UK to lose analogue signals in 2007 as broadcasters and 
the government embark on a four-year programme to switch to an 
all-digital system.
