Sticks to go digital

World Brief

Some 300 TV viewers in two Welsh villages could be the first in the U.K. to lose their analog TV signal early next year as the government goes ahead with its plan to switch to digital by 2010.

All villagers must have terrestrial digital reception via a Freeview box, cable or satellite to continue receiving terrestrial channels BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4 and Five.

Households in Ferryside and Llansteffan that do not already receive digital television will be given free digital terrestrial boxes.

Talks with the villages, chosen because both rely on a single transmitter, have started and, if there are no objections, the plan will go ahead next year.
