There are channels such as ABC News 24 that are only available through digital TV. To check if you have digital TV, press 24 or look for a DTV button on your remote.
If you can only get ABC, SBS, 7, 9 and 10, you are only receiving analog TV and need to follow the instructions below.
If you can see additional channels, you are digital ready, however you need to retune your digital equipment to receive all available channels. 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 endorsed Antenna Installer to check your equipment.
