Australia phasing out analogue TV signal; upgrade to enjoy your favourite shows

Australia phasing out analogue TV signal; upgrade to enjoy your favourite showsIt’s been in the pipeline for quite some time; finally, the analogue signal is set to be switched off in parts of Queensland. This is probably one of the biggest transitions in television history since color was invented.

Come May 28, the reception technology that has been a part of the Australian way of life for the last 50 years will be done away with across the south east.

Tasmania abandoned analogue TV earlier this week whereas Adelaide and its surrounding areas bid their farewells on April 2.

April 16 will see Perth make the switch while the Greater Sydney area will continue with the faithful service till December.

Australia plans to make the switch to digital by the end of 2013.

Televisions that are over five years old need to be upgraded or there won’t be any TV at all. New flat screen panels are compatible with digital technology but older models can be made digital-ready with a high definition set top box.

If you love watching TV, it’s better to make the shift sooner than later. You definitely wouldn’t like to switch on your TV and be greeted with a blank screen.

With a range of set top boxes to suit different viewing preferences, Jim’s Antennas is available round the clock to help you upgrade to digital entertainment.

If you have a new LCD, LED or Plasma panel, we can get it professionally installed onto your wall, cabinet or stand so that you are able to enjoy the best of audio-visual technology in your home or office.

Even though the station was a two hour […]

Billy from Jim’s Antennas Beverly Hills, New South Wales, recently did an internal wall installation of a 75-inch TV in Padstow, for a very happy customer. Billy was able to conceal all cabling, removing the need for a plastic conduit to hide the unwanted appearance of cables, resulting in a neat and minimalistic aesthetic.  In […]

Well done to the installer Troy from Jim’s Antennas. I called out to commission and audit Troy’s installation of a Foxtel ready apartment block and the system was working great.

Matt made every effort to accommodate my needs in meeting at our holiday house down south. He kept me informed the whole way and showed me the installation in detail as it required some alterations to the framework under the roof tiles. Nothing was too much for him to explain or do to make this […]
