Help someone you know with the switch to digital:

The old analogue TV service
is due to be switched off on 24th October this year, and SAORVIEW is the free-to-air digital replacement for this service. People who use an aerial to get television, need to switch to digital or they will be faced with a blank screen.  Helping someone with the digital switchover is easy and it matters. Maybe someone in your family, parish or community could do with a little help?   Helping can save stress for someone who might find technology challenging. You could save them money if you can source a good deal on their behalf.  If someone is confused about what they need to do, a little time from you could be the difference between this being a stressful event and a simple transition.
