Digital TV Rollout Schedule Due Early Next Week

Digital TV Rollout Schedule Due Early Next Week

With the government having decided to emulate the UK approach and adopt a phased rollout for the digital TV switchover, the slowly-grinding digital TV wheels seem to be speeding up somewhat. Lifehacker understands that the main rollout schedule will be announced next week — quite possibly as early as Monday — so if you don’t have a digital-capable TV or set-top box, adding one to your Christmas list sounds more sensible than ever.


  • I have had a 2 digital boxes for about a year now, one for the vcr and one for the tv (yes i know i still have a vcr, i dont record much,) i can get some channels through one box and the other channels through the other box, they are both connected to the one set of rabbit ears. i live in townsville and my question is if i would need to buy a different type oa aerial i.e. a digital aerial. thanks for the help anyone gives me.

  • Dear Wolfdog,
    you DO NOT need a digital antenna if you can receive Digital TV through your bunny ears now you will be able to receive it after the cutoff
    Most people will only need to get a Digital set top box plug it in and thats it. no change is required to your aerial
