Digital Antenna Changeover Update For Landlords and Tenants
As you are probably aware, by the end of this year, Analog TV signals will be switched off around Australia.
This means that Australian TV will be broadcast using digital-only signals and to access this, your property will need to be digital ready or their tenants will lose their access to free-to-air TV.
If the rental property currently has an antenna, you as the Landlord are obliged to keep it in working order. This would include upgrading it to receive digital TV or digital satellite TV.
Most antennas receive digital signals without any problems, especially those made after 2000. In some cases, equipment may need to be upgraded to receive a reliable digital signal.
Diagnosis of the need to upgrade your antenna
If any of your tenants or landlords have a digital TV or a set top box and they are currently watching digital TV with no interference then they will not need to upgrade their antenna.
However, if they are currently getting interference on one or more digital TV channels then they will need to upgrade their antenna and maybe some of the cabling if they want to fix that interference.Digital Changeover Antennas For Landlords and Tenants
Here is the details of what the TV stations are doing
At the moment the TV stations are transmitting two different TV signals, one is the analogue TV signal and the other is the digital TV.
When the switchover happens the broadcasters will simply switch off the analogue TV broadcast but continue sending the digital broadcast. So all your tenants/clients are currently watching digital TV with no problems will not need to upgrade anything.
The only time they need to upgrade anything is if they are having reception problems on any of the digital channels.
Please contact our office at your earliest convenience to discuss this matter if you think your TV antennae may not support the digital network so we can arrange for an upgrade prior to the analog system being lost.
