From today any television viewers who haven't gone digital will see nothing but static after New Zealand's last remaining analogue TV signal was switched off early this morning. Broadcasting Minister Craig Foss switched off the Waiatarua TV Tower analogue transmitter at 2am today, bringing to an end a three-year nationwide digital switch-over campaign.

The switch-over was carried out over 15 months in four stages, with the upper North Island the last to make the transition.
