Broadcast Australia has finished rebuilding the ABC’s VHF television antenna on Mt Wellington, which will improve coverage of ABC transmission in North Hobart, Mt Stuart, Newtown and Lenah Valley.
The UHF service installed in 2013 to provide infill TV coverage will be switched off on 8 May 2018.
The installation of the new VHF antenna means you need to do the following to continue viewing ABC on your television:
• Retune your television to VHF Channel 8 to avoid disruption to your ABC service. Until the UHF service is switched off on 8 May, you may pick up two ABC services.
• After 8 May you should retune your television to VHF Channel 8 to continue to receive your ABC television service and remove the old ABC UHF channel from your channel list.

You can also attend the ABC and Broadcast Australia community workshop on 10 April 2018, to ask any questions you may have with regards to the transition.
