Digital Television Upgrade Information – Implementation Deferred

Digital Television Upgrade Information – Implementation Deferred

PLEASE NOTE: Due to concerns that some residents and business houses may not be able to transfer to receive the upgrade at short notice, the television upgrade scheduled for this week has been delayed to allow more time for preparation. We will continue to keep you updated.

Residents in Quilpie and Eromanga are advised that new TV channels will be added during the next maintenance visit to the digital TV retransmission sites this Wednesday and Thursday (20 and 21 September). At the same time, the video format for some of the commercial TV channels will be upgraded to Mpeg4 (current video format Mpeg2).
While most of us will not need to adjust our settings (the television should automatically detect the new channels), some people may find that their television or set top box is not compatible with the new video format. Please read the information contained in the attached notice to help you if you experience trouble accessing television channels after the upgrade.
