Wellington Freeview frequencies changed in June

Issue 40 – July 2012

The frequencies for Freeview terrestrial services were changed ('re-stacked') in Wellington in June.

On the morning of 19 June Freeview viewers receiving transmission from the Kaukau, Baxter's Knob, Fitzherbert, or Haywards transmitters were reminded by on-screen messaging that they needed to retune their digital receivers.

The dates for frequency changes in Christchurch will be announced shortly.

Summarised from the Ministry of Economic Development's 'Radio Spectrum Business Update', June 2012.
