Wollongong viewers go without TV reception

Some viewers in Wollongong went without any TV reception on Thursday.

A Department of Communications spokesman said that viewers from Wombarra to Port Kembla were affected by the outage, which was fixed by 3.30pm.

‘‘This outage was so engineers could finish work at the Brokers Nose Tower after a retune in the Illawarra region,’’ the spokesman said.

Viewers do not need to take any action but if anyone has problems receiving any television channels they can visit www.digitalready.gov.au/retune  or call the Digital Ready information line on 1800 20 10 13 for assistance.
