People over 75 and those with disabilities will be eligible for a support scheme, which will provide equipment and help installing it.

The poorest households will get help with digital switchover for free, others may have to pay a fee.

A government-backed "tick" logo will feature on equipment which will work after the UK's switch to digital TV.

Digital UK has been set up by the TV industry to manage the process. It has a consumer helpline: 0845 6 50 50 50.
