TELEVISION viewers in Toogoolawah and Harlin will need to retune their sets on Friday.

Free-to-air channels SBS and Channel Seven will be changing frequencies, as part of a national retune program that will free up broadcasting spectrum for new services such as mobile broadband.

Other stations ABC, Channels Nine and Ten are not affected.

For Harlin and Toogoolawah, the retune will occur on Friday, August 22 after 3:30pm.

Viewers in the Darling Downs and Toowoomba regions retuned earlier in the year. These viewers will not need to retune again.

Retuning is done using the remote. For most systems press the 'menu' button on the remote.  Look for settings such as 'channels' or 'auto-tuning' and follow the prompts to retune.  A video and 3-step guide to retuning is available on the retune website.

The retune is scheduled to avoid evenings and weekends. There may be some temporary disruption to all TV services on retune day.

Service outages on the days before and after the retune may also be necessary, due to work being conducted at the transmission site.

As the retune simply moves free-to-air TV channels to a new location on the broadcast spectrum, it is unlikely to change TV reception or coverage.

For more information about the retune, scheduled outages, or to sign up for an SMS or email reminder, visit the retune website or call the Digital Ready Information Line on 1800 20 10 13, 8am to 10pm (AEST), 7 days.
