Channels for digital TV in Rockhampton and Wide Bay
The Australian Broadcasting Authority has released proposals to allot and assign digital channels for television repeater services at Eidsvold, Hervey Bay, Miriam Vale/Bororen, Monto, Moura, Rockhampton East, Theodore and Yeppoon, Queensland.
The proposals are contained in a discussion paper and draft variation to the Regional Queensland digital channel plans, released today.
“In releasing these proposals, the ABA weighed up a number of important factors. These include the aim of spectrum efficiency, the need to minimise any changes that viewers will have to make to their existing reception equipment to receive digital broadcasts and the desirability of broadcasters being able to use their existing infrastructure to broadcast their digital television services, ” said Lyn Maddock, Acting ABA Chair.
The discussion paper and draft variation to digital channel plans for Queensland: Part 2 – Regional Queensland are available on the ABA website, or by calling Freecall 1800 810 241. The closing date for submissions is 5.00pm, Friday 6 August 2004.
