Nowra North free-to-air TV channels will be changing frequencies on Monday.
The retune will affect viewers in North Nowra who receive their TV signal from the Cambewarra lookout TV tower. Residents who receive their TV signal from the Ulladulla or Illawarra TV towers retuned earlier this year, but may now need to retune again.
Viewers should wait until after 3:30pm before retuning.
Retuning is done using the remote. For most systems, viewers should press the menu button on the remote, look for settings such as channels or auto-tuning, then follow the prompts to retune. A video and three-step guide to retuning is available on the website.
There may also be outages to all TV services on Tuesday. Viewers will not need to retune again – the TV services will reappear once the work at the transmission site has been completed.
These moves will free up broadcasting spectrum so it can be used for new services such as mobile broadband.
People living in apartments may be using a shared antenna system. If channels do not reappear after retuning, they should contact their property manager or body corporate.
Viewers who are having difficulty retuning their equipment should check their manufacturer’s handbook or manual for instructions on how to retune, ask a friend or family member to help, visit the retune website or call the Digital Ready Information Line on 1800 20 10 13,8am to 10pm, seven days a week.
The best way for residents to find their retune day is by entering their address into the “Get retune info” box on the website at http://retune.digitalready.gov.au/.
Once the channels have moved, viewers will need to retune their digital TV, set-top box or digital TV recorder to get them back.
