The Going Digital message is being sent to your letterbox this week and next when you receive your ‘all you need to know' package in the post.

The package includes information about the equipment needed to go digital, specific regional information, digital recording advice and also includes information about the Going Digital Targeted Assistance Package.

"With less than 100 days to go until Otago goes digital, it's really important to keep people informed about what they need to do to make sure they keep enjoying watching their favourite programmes," says Greg Harford, National Manger.

"At the moment, about 47,000 households in the South Island are still to go digital so it's great if you have already made the move. However, it's also good to check with your friends, family and people within your community to make sure they've received their information pack if they haven't gone digital," says Mr Harford.

"If you haven't received your pack, if you'd like more information, visit our website www.goingdigital.co.nz or give our South Island team a call on 0800 838 800.

In addition, before April 28, Going Digital advisers will be out and about throughout the South Island chatting with people and discussing what needs to be done to make sure everyone can keep on watching TV.

New Zealand television is going digital in stages, and the South Island is next on 28 April. The lower North Island and East Coast are going digital on 29 September 2013 and finally the upper North Island on 1 December 2013.

Hawke's Bay and the West Coast have already gone digital.
