Our installers have been endorsed by the Australian Government

Our installers have been endorsed by the Australian Government and can provide you with information about your antenna and installation services. Look for a staff member wearing a Get Ready for digital TV badge.

What Do I Have To Do?

Between 2010 and 2013 Australia is switching to digital TV. What do I have to do to make the switch?

To keep receiving free-to-air TV after the digital switchover in your area, you’ll need a television that is capable of receiving digital signals. There are two ways this can happen. You can either:

  • Convert your existing analog TV using a digital set top box
  • Upgrade to a television with an in-built digital tuner

Most importantly, you do not have to buy a new TV if you don’t want to, because virtually all current analog TVs will be able to receive digital TV by adding a digital set top box.

Australian Antennas can provide you with information about the full range of options to get digital ready.

Further Information

The Australian Government has established the Antenna Installer Endorsement Scheme for antenna installers. An endorsed antenna installer can install or upgrade your antenna for the reception of free-to-air digital television.

Endorsed installers will be able to display an identification badge verifying their participation in the Scheme.
