Television and radio reception problems can be caused by a number of issues, including deficiencies in receivers or faulty antenna installations. In some cases, broadcasting services may be too far away for reception to be reliable in a particular area.
This section of the website includes detailed information on:
- radio reception and interference
- analog television reception and interference
- retuning your VCR or Pay TV set-top box
You can also download the ACMA's Better Radio and Television Reception booklet for comprehensive information on analog television & radio reception and interference problems. The booklet provides illustrations and descriptions that will help identify the most likely cause of the interference, and includes solutions to a range of common problems.
Assistance to investigate and diagnose reception problems can be obtained from the ACMA.
