Digital UK, the organisation responsible for getting Digital TV into our households, has issued a warning over the fact that nearly 20 million TVs are still not ready to receive digital TV content when the first wave of switchover occurs early next month.
Nine out of ten households have already embraced digital TV when it comes to their main TV set but this is not the case for their other sets (the ones in the kitchen or in the bedrooms) and that accounts for 30 percent of existing TV sets - roughly 18 million.
To make matters worse, Digital UK estimates that a third of people are not sure how to get ready for the Digital transition in the first place although in reality, it is much easier than one might think.
