Tomorrow’s papers are likely to full of stuff about digital TV as government Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell is delivering a big speech tonight outlining how unless we go digital with a few years (the switch off starts in 2008) all we’ll see are blank screens.
Tessa is quite possibly very excited then about the arrival of the first plug and play Scart Freeview digital terrestrial decoder that apparently is no larger than a pack of cards. Simply connect the Bush Idaptor to your telly’s Scart socket, stick the infra red sensor on top of your set (for controlling the unit) and you are away. It not only delivers those 30 or so Freveiew channels, it also boasts a seven day on screen electronic programming guide. Expect it to retail for around £50.
