From December 2013 onwards, all of Australia is broadcasting in digital-only TV. If you are not digital-ready, you won't be able to see anything.
If you are only getting some channels you may need to retune your digital equipment. See Retuning for more information.
1) Digital ready equipment
If you don’t have digital ready equipment you’ll need to buy and install it. If you're receiving specific government payments, you may be eligible for assistance. See Household Assistance Scheme for more information.
2) Professional help
If you still aren’t receiving all channels you may have a problem with your antenna or cabling. You’ll need to contact an Antenna Installer to check your equipment.
