To date, Australian television has been broadcast in both analogue and digital signals, but not any longer. With increasing technology, a lot of programs are being produced in a digital format, so to bring us up to date with the rest of the world, the Australian Government has set up a Digital TV Network to enable digital media to be broadcast into our homes. Over time, it has been phasing out the analogue signal to free up air space for digital alone. If you're not prepared by the Brisbane digital TV switchover dates, you won't be able to watch TV.

Brisbane digital TV switchover dates.

On 28 May, 2013, the analogue signal was switched off in all areas of Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.  We can complete your digital TV ready switchover now which will allow you take advantage of the full range of free to view channels available in Brisbane.

Brisbane digital switchover

The Australian Government realises, that for some people, the Brisbane digital TV switchover dates may be the cause for unwelcome financial stress. Therefore, they have introduced the Household Assistance Scheme and made it available to provide assistance to eligible people who may need it.

You may be eligible for assistance for the digital switchover

  • If you live in a household where you or your partner is receiving the maximum rate of one of the following payments:
    • Age Pension
    • Disability Support Pension
    • Carer Payment
    • Department of Veterans' Affairs Service Pension
    • Department of Veterans Affairs Income Support Supplement
  • Must own a functioning TV
  • Do not already have access to digital TV on any of the TVs that you own (if you can watch ABC2, ABC3 or SBS TWO then you probably have access to digital TV), and
  • Must live in a TV license area that is currently switching to digital TV

Centrelink will send a letter to people who may be eligible for the Household Assistance Scheme approximately six months before their area is due for the Brisbane digital switchover.
