Digital TV switchover

This month the digital TV switchover reaches Brighton. Anyone not re-tuning will lose their TV signal. Information from other areas of the country has indicated that unscrupulous persons have used the switchover as a ploy to con vulnerable persons out of money, either through selling products/services that are not required or at an inflated cost, or by using it as a front for gaining access to houses and then committing a distraction burglary.
Please make sure that you, family members and vulnerable neighbours are prepared for the switchover and not at risk of falling victim to rogue traders or distraction burglary.

A help scheme exists for persons aged over 75, registered blind/partially sighted, in receipt of disability living allowance, attendance or constant maintenance allowance, mobility supplement or those living in a care home for six months or more.

Further details of this scheme are available on 0800 4085900 or helpscheme.co.uk
