Today at 9am, the analogue television system was shut off permanently in the Sunraysia region. This serves as the first region to take part in the systematic shut down of analogue TV broadcast systems across Australia.  By December 31 2013, Australia should be an entirely digital TV nation.

By December 13, Broken Hill in NSW, and the Riverland, Mount Gambier and Spencer Gulf regions in SA will encounter the analogue switch-off. Further regions will follow, finally culminating with the switch-off in Australia’s capital cities.
