KATIE TAYLOR approaches the 2012 Olympic boxing ring and thanks to the magic of digital terrestrial television, my in-laws get to see their first high definition gold medal.
We visited Argos for a €35 Alba Saorview unit and also walked out with a 10 euro SCART cable. I had already given a 30 euro antenna from Maplins to the in-laws and installation was simple. Connect the cables to a stupid televison and let the intelligent channel finder do its work. The digital terrestrial signal is strong enough in Celbridge to allow a small antenna in place of a larger rabbit ears.
Today, it should deliver a pathway to gold for Celbridge viewers.
