Sunshine Coast Digital TV Switch Over on 28th May

Today the Minister for Communication made a statement asking residents of The Sunshine Coast to get ready for the Digital Switch Over.

"On 28 May 2013 the Brisbane switchover region, including the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, will become the tenth region in Australia to switch to digital-only free-to-air TV," Senator Conroy said.

"Many people in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast are already getting the benefits of digital TV, with around 92 per cent of households across the region already making the switch.

"For most people, switching to digital TV is straightforward. You can either connect a set-top box or digital TV recorder to an existing analog TV or upgrade to a digital TV, which has a built-in digital tuner.

"If you have already made the switch to digital TV, it's a good time to make sure your family and friends are digital-ready before analog TV is switched off on 28 May 2013.

"The Australian Government is also providing assistance to help people get ready for digital television.

"The Household Assistance Scheme and the Satellite Subsidy Scheme provide practical help to eligible households to make the switch to digital TV. Both schemes are now open, and people can check their eligibility by calling the Department of Human Services on 1800 55 64 43," Senator Conroy said.
