RIP Analogue telly
It has been confirmed that there are no analogue tellies to be found in major British high street stores any more, as the race towards the digital switchover gathers momentum. Last month, for the first time, zero sales of analogue television sets were recorded.
Stats show that out of 26.8 million UK TV homes, 23.8 million of them already have digital – via DTT, satellite, or cable. The big analogue switch off is due to be completed in 2012. Kinda sad.
Some questions – when was the last time you called out the television repair man? Is there anything more amazing than the sight of the inner workings of a CRT telly or is that just a childhood thing? Are we all just getting old? 3D telly – that’s a load of old shite really isn’t it?
