Advice on Digital Switchover in Winchmore Hill
The Digital TV Switchover date for London is nearly upon us, but it needn’t strike fear through households keen on keeping up to date with Eastenders and the Olympics!
All of Pounds' TVs are digital, so if you don’t have a modern digital TV you could simply buy a new one, and perhaps a DVD/hard drive recorder if you want to save the programs.
If, however, you don’t want the expense of upgrading there are ways to enjoy the extra channels that digital TV brings without disposing of your telly.
The first is to simply add a digital set top box, which will cost around £29.99. These connect to your TV aerial and then to your TV. You’ll have an additional remote control to change channels on the set top box, and that’s pretty much it.
If you want to record TV programs you can connect the box to your video or DVD recorder (you’ll have to watch the same channel that you wish to record).
To record a different channel you’ll need a second set top box, or a set top box with a built in recorder.
We will be offering a digital set up and tune service, so if the above still seems a bit complicated one of our chaps will connect it all up and get you running.
Finally, if you’re still confused you can call our resident digital expert, Alan (or Digi-Al as we call him) on 020 8370 1820.
