The findings of a national survey released last week show the num- ber of homes in Auckland aware of the upcoming switch from analogue TV to digital TV has increased from 11 per- cent to 35 percent. The research com- missioned by Going Digi- tal, part of the Ministry for Culture and Heri- tage, also reveals that more than seven out of 10 homes in the city have already gone digital. Auckland's analogue TV system will be switched off in November 2013, as part of a phased national approach begin- ning in the West Coast and Hawkes Bay in Sept- ember 2012. It is being replaced with digital services that give viewers better reception and sound, more channels and onscreen TV guides. Going Digital national manager Greg Harford says there's been signifi- cant interest from residents keen to go digi- tal. Digital TV is already available in Auckland so I am encouraging those viewers who want to enjoy the benefits to make the switch now. Going Digital means better reception and sound quality and more channels, as well as extra benefits like onscreen TV guides. Almost any television can go digital so people don't need a new TV but they may need some new equipment to keep watching TV once the analogue system is turned off.'' People with Sky TV or Freeview are already receiving a digital signal so they don't need to do anything. Other viewers will need to buy a set-top box and an aerial or sat- ellite dish depending on what equipment they have and where they live. Going Digital will be running a comprehen- sive public information campaign to make sure people know everything they need to know about the switchover to digital television.
