Regional SA to go digital-only on 15 December 2010

Tuesday, 2 March 2010 09:48am

The analog switch-off date for the SA regional areas and Broken Hill in NSW has been confirmed as 15 December 2010. As part of the switchover program, a government equipment assistance scheme is in place to help eligible people (which includes some people with disabilities).

The equipment assistance scheme provides a digital set-top box, proper installation and set-up, all free-of-charge. The set-top boxes used in the scheme include features that are useful to people with disabilities, including tactile buttons and simple-to-use menus. The boxes also decode and display closed-captions. 

For more information on the regional SA switchover, go to the DBCDE website.
