Wireless microphones, which are often used at conferences and for theatre productions, have now been moved to different frequencies. In addition, TV transmitters and receivers across the UK have been retuned. The final TV retune will be completed on Wednesday in northern Scotland.
Affiliate marketing pioneer Tradedoubler has published new research that shows 19% of consumers now book holidays via their mobile phones.
The figures come from a new whitepaper; ‘Performance Marketing: Travellers & Purchase Paths’.
