Gorse Hill Labour

A regular blog and updates from Mike Cordingley, Councillor for Gorse Hill Ward in Trafford – Gtr Manchester.

Digital Switchover

I went to the digital switchover event on Tuesday night for councillors and officers. I can’t add the publicity in terms of what to do to switch over but there was one particularly relevant advice. Apparently when the analogue service is terminated, the digital signal used by freeview TVs and boxes will be boosted tenfold.

A lot of our residents suffer poor reception due to the container base and other tall buildings. Many of them (me included) have given up with trying to get a decent reception through an aerial. The chances are that the boosted reception improves things and could save many of us the monthly subscriptions we’re having to pay.

Anyway, it might be worth giving it a try after November
