Digital Television Project

From 2001-05, industry and Government worked together on Digital Switchover through the Digital Television Project. This resulted in the development of a detailed Digital Television Action Plan setting out the various tasks that had to be completed to enable the Government to make decisions on the timescale for switchover and the strategy going forward. The last version of the Digital Television Action Plan was published in October 2004. The report of the Digital Television Project was published in March 2005.
