Retune sets in Perth for SBS

2013-05-17_1116Digital TVs, set-top boxes and PVRs s in Perth must be retuned today as part of Australia’s switch to digital-only TV (not great timing with Eurovision really!).

All SBS TV services will change frequency on different dates in different cities, due to be completed by the end of 2014.

    @EvanOnTheGC – the simulcast period finished earlier today. All I got for SBS was “No signal” until I rescanned.

    Also, I noticed that there is now a second transmitter (relay) in Perth that seems to be rebroadcasting all of the digital streams in the UHF band around channels 50-55. So now every LCN is listed twice.

  2. @EvanOnTheGC Perth viewers will need to retune for SBS from today as the one-month simulcast period started on 16 April (just after their analogue shutdown) and ends today.

  3. Thank you so very much for alerting me to this, David. I love the way you know Australia still exists West of Wagga Wagga.
    Your blog continues to go from strength to strength. 🙂

    There is no need for Perth residents to retune today specifically. SBS will be simulcast for a month on both the old and new channels. for the full timetable
