Switch to digital TV on April 16

After that date, free-to-air television broadcasts will require a digital set top box or a digital video recorder of a TV with an integrated digital TV tuner.

A quick way to check if your TV is digital ready is to see if you receive channels like ABC2 or SBS TWO.

These are standard definition digital channels, so if you are receiving these channels and do not have a subscription TV, your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts.

– Residents will be able to dispose of their obsolete televisions using their regular whitegoods verge collection service, or alternatively at the Southern Metropolitan Regional Council waste disposal site.

The City of Melville will also provide a special service to collect old analogue TVs and will extend this service to old computers, printers and other computer equipment.

The disposal site will be located in the car park at the Operations Centre in Bramanti Road, Murdoch on April 27 and 28.

It is only available to City of Melville residents and will be open between 9am and 4pm.
