Television Black Spot Program
A Federal Government television black spot program was previously in place to enable residents affected by poor television reception in East Perth to access all of the available analog television signals.
As at 17 May 2013, Analog television signals were replaced in Perth by digital television transmissions.
Please read below to ensure you are informed about these changes.
If you have already tried retuning your TV or set top box and you are still having problems, please visit www.digitalready.gov.au
What if I don’t have a signal?
If you don’t have any reception you'll most likely need a new antenna or wiring. Before calling an endorsed Antenna Installer, there are a few steps you can take:
- check mySwitch to see what coverage is predicted for your area and, if required, to access technical information
- try retuning your set-top box or digital TV. Your tuner may not be set up for the available services in your area
- check your antenna is not damaged and that you are using all the correct cables and that they're not loose or disconnected.
If the above solutions do not work, you may have an inadequate antenna system or no coverage from your area’s transmitter. In either case you should call an endorsed Antenna Installer (visit www.digitalready.gov.au)
