As the final step in Australia’s move to digital-only TV, free-to-air channels ABC and SBS will change frequencies in Canberra, Queanbeyan and surrounds on 20 November. After the channels have changed, you will need to retune your digital TV, set-top box or digital TV recorder to find the channels that have moved.
If you are missing a channel on or after Canberra’s retune date of 20 November, you should retune to ensure you continue to receive all available free-to-air digital channels.
Retuning is simple for most systems press the menu button on the remote and follow the prompts to retune. If you have difficulty retuning you should refer to the manufacturer’s handbook, ask a friend or family member for help, visit the Digital Ready website, www.digitalready.gov.au/retune or call the Digital Ready Information Line 1800 20 10 13 from 8am to 10pm (AEDT), 7 days.
If you find channels haven’t changed, you may be receiving a signal from a different TV transmitter. You can check to see which channels should have changed in your area by entering your address into the ‘get retune info’ box on the website. In some cases, certain digital equipment will automatically retune itself. This means you won’t need to do anything.
