mySwitch TV coverage prediction data

When digital television was introduced to Australia, the mySwitch website was set up to help viewers and installers retune digital televisions as analog services were decommissioned. By entering a street address into mySwitch, viewers can see if television signal coverage is available and, if so, which transmitter is likely to provide the best signal. When the digital TV restack process was completed, mySwitch was retained to assist viewers and installers to retune TVs to the new channel arrangements.

mySwitch relies on comprehensive, terrain-based coverage modelling generated by the ACMA’s state-of-the-art coverage prediction tools. This data has now been made available to the public, and may be used to support other projects or applications.

Please note that while the mySwitch data has been updated from time to time as new TV transmissions are commissioned, the transmitter data and files reflect coverage predictions as at 2014 for the great majority of sites. Therefore, there may be some differences between the mySwitch data and the current situation. See also the important disclaimer below.
