Scottish digital switchover completed

UK transmission service provider Arqiva has now completed digital switchover in Scotland.

The Black Hill transmitter group, serving parts of Glasgow, central Scotland and parts of Edinburgh completes the country’s digital network, with Kirkfieldbank, near Lanark, the final station to switch over.

In the UK as a whole, eight out of the country’s 15 TV regions have now fully switched, including all of Wales and now Scotland, as part of the five-year £700m (€790 million) switchover project. Arqiva has completed about two-thirds of the engineering work which has included five new tall masts (including Black Hill) and a large number of replacement antenna systems.  A total of 39 main stations and 709 relays have already been switched over.
