BBC’s All-Digital TV Output Plans “On Course”

March 9, 2016

The Bermuda Broadcasting Company Ltd. said that plans to upgrade the company’s television channels, ZBM-CBS9 and ZFB-ABC7, to an all-digital output are “continuing on course.”

“This week the company is switching off its last remaining analog TV transmitter. This will allow the company to focus on bringing high-quality digital images to viewers,” the company said.

“For most, the change will be imperceptible. Newer televisions have digital receivers built into them, so there should be no interruption of service. Anyone with an older, analog television will need to buy a digital receiver box or upgrade to a digital television; digital receiver boxes are available locally at electronics stores.

“If viewers have questions, they can contact the Bermuda Broadcasting at 295-2828. For help programming digital televisions, viewers can come to the Bermuda Broadcasting offices at 4 Fort Hill in Prospect, where staff will be available to assist.

“Over the past several years, ZBM-CBS9 and ZFB-ABC7 have broadcast over the airwaves on digital channels 20.1 and 20.2, and will continue to do so without interruption Bermuda Broadcasting, the Island’s longest-serving broadcasting company, will keep the public informed of changes to radio and television stations. Bermuda Broadcasting’s vital role in the community is to provide essential information and thoughtful, positive entertainment for the Island.”

    ‘Newer televisions have digital receivers built into them’. Lol digital television has been available in the developed world for about 15 years now.

    Not correct. Older digital TVs don’t always have digital tuners on board.
