With just over a week to go before analogue television signals are switched off the Going Digital roadshow has stepped up a gear with daily "ask us" sessions planned between Napier and Hastings.
Going Digital Community Advisor Murray Sawyer said over the past week he had noticed a real urgency within the community as the shutdown day grew closer.
"They want to make sure they are ready for the change.
"For some it can be as simple as buying a set-top box and hooking it up while for others it can be more technical."
Mr Sawyer said the advisers would be "out and about" across the region to ensure the message got through - that anyone without digital television reception would simply not be watching anything but "snow" after September 30.
The latest poll figures show about 92 per cent of Bay viewers had made the switch - meaning about 4000 were yet to join the digital generation.
Mr Sawyer said apart from the actual televisions the switch from analogue to digital would also affect all television-driven equipment such as video recorders and DVDs.
People did not need to buy a new television but needed to have Sky or Freeview top-boxes to take the new signals.
The Going Digital roadshow will be out and about to answer questions and give advice over the next three days.
Today: Flaxmere Shops, 10am-3pm, Pak'nSave Hastings, 10am-3pm.
Saturday: The Warehouse Napier and Hastings, 10am-4pm.
Sunday: Napier Market, 9.30am-1pm.
