Bolton Digital Television Trial
26 May 2006
The aim of the Bolton Digital TV Trial was to investigate what type of support would be needed at digital switchover by people aged 75 and over. We wished to know what issues they would have when installing and using digital TV equipment, how many would need help, and how this could best be provided. We also wished to learn more about the likely costs of supporting people aged 75 and over through digital switchover, including how many homes would need aerial upgrades.
The findings of the Trial will help to inform the development of the Support Scheme for those aged 75 and over and people with significant disabilities, but the Trial was not designed to be a prototype of that scheme.
The trial was a partnership between the Government, the BBC and Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council.
