Oxfordshire digital switchover completed

Analogue television channels in Oxfordshire and parts of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire have been permanently switched off.

The digital switchover began on 14 September when BBC Two's analogue signal was turned off at the Oxford transmitter group.

Freeview channels are now available to viewers who had previously been in digital blackspots.

The move completes the digital switchover in the Oxfordshire area.

Before 14 September, about 6,000 viewers in areas including Chipping Norton had been unable to receive BBC Freeview channels.

The final switchover on Wednesday has meant further Freeview channels from ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 are available from local transmitters for the first time.

Existing Freeview viewers will have to retune their sets.
