Most of us know by now that TV services in the UK are going digital by 2012. But if you live in a rented property, who’s responsible for paying for it? You, or your landlord? In general, the rule is the same as for other services – if you can see a socket then it’s the landlord’s responsibility to make sure it’s working.
