THE Mayor of Sunderland is urging TV viewers in the city to stay switched on.
Wearside’s digital TV switchover is now less than a week away.
The analogue TV signal serving the city will be switched off on Wednesday and viewers will need to have a digital receiver ready.
“It’s very important we’re all aware of this switchover and we’re all prepared for it so we can all continue to enjoy our favourite programmes,” said Coun Iain Kay.
“There’s lots of help and advice available from Digital UK and the Switchover Help Scheme for anyone who is still unsure if the switchover will affect them.”
