Saorview Deadline Looming

Are you prepared for the switch?

Does it mean that people who do not go digital can at last stop paying for the TV license? (If they receive no TV and are not equipped to, as opposed to being equipped to but not using it or it not working)

Will old people end up not noticing anything till it is too late?

Ireland's terrestrial analogue television network will be switched off next October, as the country makes the change to the new national digital TV network.

The Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte said the old network would be turned off on October 24th 2012, as the changeover to the digital TV network is officially completed. Northern Ireland's analogue network is also being switched off on the same date.

That will leave Irish TV viewers using the free-to-air digital terrestial television (DTT) service Saorview system for subscription-free TV services, which RTÉ launched in May. The analogue and digital networks currently work in parallel, and will continue to do so until the switchover date.

No Blah,even if you never switched on your TV,you still have to have a licence for it.

That was because the license is for having an aerial allowing reception... even if the tv is broken.
But now an arial is not enough, thus no possible reception would mean no license unless they changed the law

But are you ready?

Saoireview? Holiday view?

Is this a holiday television station we haven't heard about?

PS- ah I think I see what you might be at.

The thread title could be misleading when you only get the first half

This could be a godsend for people sick of paying for NTL / SKY but it doesn't do away with the TV licence - as long as you have a TV you need a licnece.

Seriously- its called Saorview. Is there a grammatical/humour reason behind calling it Saoireview in the title?

I've fixed the title typo and simplified the title. Blah, feel free to expand on the title again in a way that makes sense.

Is it more prone to interference than regular TV?
