Australia’s Digital TV Switchover: What it Means to You

Many Australians can receive free-to-air TV broadcasts via both analog and digital signals. Analog technology is out of date, however, so everyone around the world is converting to digital signals only. In Australia, the switch from analog to digital-only is taking place now through the end of 2012.

What Happens if I Don’t Switch to Digital?

Once the switch happens in your area, if you do not have a TV that can receive digital signals, you will not be able to watch any television programs, including free-to-air broadcasts.

Switching over to digital, however, means you’ll be able to watch your current favorite free-to-air channels plus additional free channels. You will also be able to view the TV program schedule on your television screen, and watch programs and movies in widescreen when available.

How Do I Make the Switch?

If you’re ready for an upgrade

If your current television is old and out-of-date, consider purchasing a new TV. This is the easiest way to make the switchover from analog to digital because all televisions offered by Bing Lee are digital ready – you don’t have to do anything!

If you want to keep your current TV
