Wait until 2002 to decide on analogue switch-off say watchdogs

The UK government should wait until 2002 before it decides when to switch off the analogue television signal, a group of industry regulators have warned.

LONDON (Brand Republic) – The UK government should wait until 2002 before it decides when to switch off the analogue television signal, a group of industry regulators have warned.

The regulators from the Independent Television Commission, Oftel and the Office of Fair Trading were commissioned by the government to investigate the date when only a digital signal would be available.

They produced a consultation paper that said that a firm date for the analogue switch over should not be confirmed until the market was re-examined in 2002.
