What exactly does this mean???
Will i get any new channels on my normal tv???
does it have a digital reciever?
It just means the channels are broadcast over a digital signal rather than an analogue one, meaning that analogue receivers will no longer pick them up.
No i dont have freeview. So i wont get e4 or anything like that???
You will end up getting digital channels, because you have to get freeview or some other form of digital receiver for your television. (As I understand it).
Any idea how you record from digital television? I'm assuming you need a DVD recorder since VCR is an analogue system?
Everyone will eventually get the digital channels such as e4* more4 or nothing. If you do not have a digital receiver (built into new tv's) you will need a separate one for each tv. You can get freeview boxes fairly cheaply.
Freeview isn't the only option but is generally the cheapest and easiest, you could get Sky or Virgin but these will have a subscription however you get more channels. Other non sub options are freesat or freesatfromsky.
When your region does the switchover there will be a lot of local publicity to support everyone.
In regards to recording TV, I believe it is still possible, but someone please correct me if I have this completely wrong. The digital signal goes to the receiver, be it built into the TV or externally, and converted to an image. You can then have a cable from the TV to VCR recorder (people still use these?), this will carry an analogue signal so it is still possible to record. But of course with the digital switchover, it's probably time you upgrade to some better quality recording equipment.
Is there a freeview + or something that is exactly like sky+ where you can record programmes and save them ???
