UK retailers to kill off analogue TV sales in months

September 13th, 2007 · No Comments

The days of the analogue TV will soon be officially over. A powerful consortium of the UK retailers and manufacturers have pledged to phase out analogue TVs, DVD recorders and VCRs, by the end of the year. The Digital Switchover Supply Chain Group also aims to improve consumer information, as each TV region heads toward switchover.
Explains Danny Churchill, co-chairman of the Digital Switchover Supply Chain Group: “We’ve already seen a rapid transformation in the market for larger, flatscreen televisions, the vast majority of which are now digital. The moves we are announcing will further benefit consumers by continuing that transformation across the full range of television and recording equipment.”
Latest figures reveal that nine out of ten large screen sets sold during 2007 have included a Freeview tuner. However, small screen TVs are still predominantly analogue.
