Digital TV guidance
Matamata residents can find out everything they need to know about television going digital in October and November. Andrew Baillie, Going Digital community adviser for Waikato, will be in town to discuss what viewers need to do to keep watching television after the area goes digital on December 1 2013. ‘‘With just over two years to go until the old analogue TV signal is switched off for Matamata, we’re encouraging those viewers who haven’t, to plan and prepare for the change now,’’ said Mr Baillie.
‘‘I’d like to remind people that they don’t need a new TV to go digital because almost any TV can receive a digital signal with the right equipment.
‘‘ If you have Sky or Freeview, you have already gone digital, if not, you’ll need a set top box and the appropriate aerial or satellite dish, depending on where you live.’’
Mr Baillie will be events:
Matamata Senior Net – October 28 from 9.30am, at the Senior Net rooms, Arawa St
New World Matamata – October 28 11.30am-1.30pm, 45 Waharoa East Rd
Matamata Probus – November 10 from 10am at the Matamata Club, Rawhiti Ave.
