What is the digital switch over (DSO)?

As at 1st December 2013, the analogue TV signals have been switched off throughout New Zealand. It all happened region by region from September 2012 and was termed the digital switch over.

The whole process was managed by a team made up of government leaders and industry experts, and Freeview provided and continues to provide the most accessible free-to-air digital TV platforms available to all of New Zealand.
