How the digital switchover will happen in Whitehaven:
From early May, captions will appear on analogue channels warning viewers the TV set must be connected to digital.
In the early hours of October 17, BBC Two will stop broadcasting in analogue and the first group of Freeview digital channels - BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, BBC News 24 and CBBC - will become available.
During this transitional stage, analogue ITV1 will move to button 2 on remote controls to make way for the first group of digital channels.
In the early hours of 14 November, the remaining analogue channels will be permanently switched off. Every home in the area will then be able to receive at least 18 Freeview channels, including ITV2, E4 and BBC Four, plus digital radio, via an aerial.
