One of the problems here in the Scottish Borders (who were the first to have analogue shut down) is that, week by week, minor changes take place to the freeview spectrum. No publicity is given to this but older viewers who aren't up with all this and who, perhaps, have had a whole lot of "stuff" installed under their tv, perhaps by a friend or even under the BBC system, just have no idea what is going on
Week by week the freeview system will give notice of "new channels" and suggest a retune
Generally, you'll find this is a shopping channel or (forgive me) the "nuts" channel
What does a 75 year old make of that?
Now, the spectrum is being shifted to allow for freeview hd, and some of the "major" channels (don't you just love it?) like itv 3 and 4 are being moved
And if I don't retune I'll lose some football. As will the 75 year old next door if I don't go and retune his box for him because he just can't get his head round all this rubbish
And if he's unlucky and has bought the wrong make, it will go kerplunk and not work any more
Aren't you glad you're not old
