On the 24th October all Irish analogue TV stations will be replaced by digital services. This will affect any TV that receives its signal from an aerial.
Saorview is Ireland’s free digital TV service and in order to receive TV channels after the switchover you will need either a Saorview-approved set-top box, OR a Saorview-approved TV which has a decoder already inside it.
For a list of Saorview-approved TVs and set-top boxes visit the Saorview website at http://www.saorview.ie. For more information and help making the switch visit http://www.wheel.ie/digitalswitchover or click below to access an information leaflet.
The switch can be confusing for some people. If you have time visit your family and friends who may need assistance with the switch.
