Transmit across the Viewer

The switch means Australians have more channels and improved picture and sound quality. Another objective of the switch was to give all households in Australia access to the same range of television services as people living in our major cities. In 2010, the Government funded Viewer Access Satellite Television (VAST) service commenced (see below).

Australia has also completed a restack that involved digital television services being retuned to new frequencies to free up spectrum.. New communication services, such as mobile broadband, can now use this spectrum. About 1, 500 digital television services at about 440 transmission sites had their frequencies changed.

The mySwitch tool lets you enter an address and find out information on the reception and the antenna set-up likely to be appropriate for where they live. If you live within the coverage of more than one broadcast transmission site, you can use this information to manually tune your television to the best reception.

New transmission issues or outages

Contact the television broadcaster directly to raise concerns about a television reception problem. Contact details are:

  • on the broadcaster’s website
  • in telephone directories

Household Assistance Scheme (HAS) and Satellite Subsidy Scheme (SSS)

The Satellite Subsidy Scheme (SSS) and the Household Assistance Scheme (HAS) helped eligible people get access to digital television. These schemes finished in January 2014.

If you have questions about an installation under the Household Assistance Scheme or the Satellite Subsidy Scheme, contact the service provider who did the installation for you. The phone number should be on the sticker attached to the set-top box or information card you were given at the time of installation.
