2:00pm Sunday 13th January 2013 in News
BLACK and white TVs are still being switched on in town.
Figures released by TV Licensing have revealed there are still 29 black and white licences in Warrington - after nearly 46 years of colour broadcasting.
A spokesman said: “Despite the historic switch to digital television last year, and an increase in the sale of flat screen televisions, tablets, laptops and smart-phones over the Christmas period, some homes in the UK just cannot bear to part with their trusty black and white television sets.”
