Digital Switchover

Digital Switchover

Important Information


You may have heard that television in the UK is going through a major change called the Digital Switchover. The existing analogue TV signal will be switched off and replaced with a new, stronger digital TV signal. It will mean that almost everyone will be able to receive digital TV through an aerial (Freeview).

To be able to watch television in the future, everyone in the UK will need to use a digital receiver, such as a Freeview set-top box or a television that comes with Freeview built in. There is no monthly subscription needed for Freeview. For more information, please call the Digital UK helpline on 08456 50 50 50.

Want to listen to Insight for Living through your television? It’s possible!

What you may not know is that Insight for Living can be heard on Freeview channel 725 through Premier Christian Radio. Our daily programme can be heard at 6:30 am and 7:30 pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively, if you use a Freesat set-top box, Trans World Radio is on channel 790, and they carry Insight for Living at 12:30 lunchtime and 7:05 pm.

No longer able to hear Insight for Living through Freeview?

Because of the Digital Switchover, it is possible that you may need to retune Freeview at some point. If you are currently unable to watch or listen to certain channels that you were able to hear before, it is probably a sign that a retune is necessary. This is a simple procedure that should only take a couple of minutes. For help on how to retune your Freeview, you can call the Digital UK helpline on 08456 50 50 50.
