The National Landlords Association (NLA) has teamed up with Sky to help landlords during the digital switchover.

Many confused landlords have admitted that they are not prepared for the switchover, the association reported.

Now part of the NLA Recognised Supplier Scheme, Sky can provide digital services to landlords and advise them on what needs to be done to prepare rental property for the move.

Paul Berwick, head of marketing at the association said: "Many landlords are still in the dark about what they need to do."

He said that Sky can now tailor its products to provide for each landlord's needs.

One such product is reception systems for blocks of flats which rental properties with communal viewing could benefit from - rather than installing individual dishes.

Some 57 per cent of privately-owned flats are not prepared for the digital switchover, according to Sky's research.

Government policy states that almost everyone in the UK will be able to receive digital TV through an aerial, the digital UK website notes.

Different areas of the country will switch from analogue television between now and 2012.
