Analogue TV viewers in Newtownabbey have less than two weeks to get ready for the digital TV switchover, starting on October 10.

The Northern Ireland switchover marks the completion of a five-year programme across the UK.

With under a fortnight to go until the first analogue channel is permanently switched off, latest research indicates nine out of ten homes in Northern Ireland have already gone digital on their main TV set, but some still need to get ready or risk having a blank screen.

Digital UK, the independent body in charge of the process, is now launching the final stage of its information campaign.
