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.’’
