Why are we being forced to go digital?

MAY I ask your readers if they know why we are being forced to shell out millions of pounds to go digital with our radios and televisions?

Some say it’s because we will get better reception but mine so far, on both, has been rubbish.

Would it have anything to do with the suggestion that the government, which has ‘owned’ the airwaves since 1904 is set to rake in billions next year when it sells off the analogue airwaves to the mobile phone companies?

As a follower of that son of Wisbech, William Godwin, I shouldn’t be too surprised if it was true but perhaps your readers know otherwise?
