Analog TV signals are being switched off around Australia, region by region, between 2010 and 2013. After this date, all areas of Australia will receive digital TV signals only.
In order to keep receiving free-to-air TV after the analog switch off in your area, you’ll need a television that is capable of receiving digital signals.
To make getting ready easier, the following considerations need to taken into account.
1. Set Top Box for current Analog TV
2. Digital Ready TV and Equipment
1. Use a reputable Installer to assess your current system
Most areas already enjoy new channels such as ABC1, ABC2, SBS2, Go, One HD, GEM, 7Mate and 72 as well as high definition. Over the next few years the old analogue service will be progressively shut down so that only the digital channels will remain.
“Freeview” is the name for this expanded range of channels available for free to air viewing; giving Australians much broader alternatives in what they choose to watch on TV. Digital TV not only enables a greater choice but has the potential to deliver much higher quality pictures and sound; as well as widescreen.
