Television stations change frequency

There may be some unavoidable temporary outages to all TV channels on September 10 to 11 and 17 to 18.

Television stations transmitting to the Peninsula from Gosford and Bouddi National Park will change their frequencies on Wednesday, September 17.

These moves are part of a national retune program that will free up broadcasting spectrum for new services such as mobile broadband, according to the Department of Communication.

This retune will only affect viewers receiving their TV signal from the towers located in Gosford, Bouddi and Wyong.

After the channels have changed, viewers will need to retune their digital TV, set-top box or digital TV recorder to find the channels that have moved.

Retuning should not be done until after 3:30pm on retune day as channels won't move until then.

There may be some unavoidable temporary outages to all TV channels on September 10 to 11 and 17 to 18.

These outages are necessary due to engineering work being undertaken at the transmission tower, according to the Department.

Any outages are unlikely to last longer than a few hours.

For more information about the retune and scheduled outages visit the retune website or call the Digital Ready Information Line on 1800 20 10 13.
