Date Announced for Digital TV Retune

As the final step in Australia’s move to digital-only TV, a ‘retune’ program will be carried out until the end of 2014 which will involve a change in frequencies for some TV channels. 

The program aims to move some free-to-air television channels to new frequencies to free up space for new services such as mobile broadband. 

The Retune program will take place on Wednesday 3 September 2014 for Oberon residents and other areas of the Central West and Central Tablelands.

After the retune on 3 September, if Oberon residents are missing any channels they should retune their digital TVs, set top boxes or digital TV recorder to ensure they continue to receive all available free-to-air digital channels in the area. Retuning is done using your remote, accessing the Menu options and then following the prompts to retune. If you are having difficulties or would like some guidance, please pick up a ‘Retune

’ flyer from Council. 

There may be some unavoidable temporary outages to all TV channels in the days leading up to, on the day of, and the day or two after the retune date. Any outages are unlikely to last longer than a few hours. 

The retune program is being carefully planned to make sure the change is as easy as possible for the whole community. 

If you would like more information about the retune program, please phone the Digital Ready Information Line on 1800 20 10 13 or visit the website
