Friday 29th of June 2012

On Tuesday 27 November 2012, large areas of Northern NSW will switch off their analog TV signals and switch to digital-only free-to-air TV – and with just under five months to go, Regional Development Australia Northern Inland (RDANI) is encouraging people to get ready for digital TV.


RDANI is pleased to welcome Judi Sheedy as the Digital Switchover Liaison Officer for the North West Slopes and Plains switchover area including the Tenterfield Local Government Area.


"With funding from the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, we are hosting a dedicated Digital Switchover Liaison Officer who will work with local organisations and community groups to help people make a smooth transition to digital TV," said RDANI Executive Officer, Nathan Axelsson.


Judi will provide local community support and digital switchover information to the region and will cover the area from Quirindi north to Moree and Armidale west to Wee Waa.


"We want to make sure that nobody is left behind in the switch to digital TV, so if you would like more information on the switchover in your area , please call the Digital Ready Information Line on toll free 1800 20 10 13 or visit the Digital Ready website www.digitalready.gov.au,” Mr Axelsson said.
