Digital Switch Over for the Sheffield and Chesterfield transmitter groups in Yorkshire has been successfully implemented by Arqiva.

All six digital multiplexes are now being transmitted at high power from the Sheffield site at Crosspool, with its single dependent relay at Totley Rise carrying digital signals for the first time. At Chesterfield all PSB digital multiplexes are now at high power, along with its three dependent relays at Brockwell, Dronfield and Hasland.

In accordance with the transition plan, the Arqiva B commercial multiplex at Sheffield will move to its final DSO channel on 27 September 2011. At Chesterfield the SDN, Arqiva A and Arqiva B commercial multiplexes take final DSO powers from 12 October 2011.

Following the analogue switch-off for BBC Two on 10 August, the remaining analogue signals for BBC One, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 ceased by 00:35 on Wednesday 24 August. The new digital signals entered official service at Chesterfield from 04:30 and at Sheffield from 05:35, with the last of the relays completed by 14:44.

Arqiva is the transmission provider for all terrestrial TV and most radio services in the UK. Read More>>
