Analogue switch off has finally happened
Broadcasting history was made today when RTE’s Miriam O’Callaghan switched off the old analogue signal across the country at 10am heralding the introduction of digital television to Ireland. The occasion was marked by a live news broadcast on RTE 1 featuring the Minister for Communications, Mr. Pat Rabbitte T.D. and hosted by Bryan Dobson and Mary Kennedy.
Here are a few of today’s key moments as the analogue signal was switched off.
