Digital deadline pushed to 2012

World Brief

Blighty is unlikely to switch off analog TV signals and move to digital before 2012 at the earliest.

The admission by Media Secretary Tessa Jowell reps a bit of backtracking by the government, which had said the switch would happen in 2010. Many industryites think the digital switch will not come until 2015.

Just over half of British homes are connected to digital, but there is still confusion about digital TV among consumers and problems remain over what to do about homes that have more than one TV.
