Digital Terrestrial Television in Australia - Government Labelling Scheme

Government Labelling Scheme

In April 2009, the government released a new labelling scheme for digital television devices, to help people buy the correct equipment in the transition from analog to digital television. This is unrelated to the Freeview labelling endorsed by the major commercial and public broadcasters and may add to existing confusion between Freeview and Digital TV.

Televisions will have the following labels:

  1. Digital TV Capable - for analogue TVs which require a set top box
  2. Digital TV Ready (Standard Definition) - for TVs able to receive SD broadcasts
  3. Digital TV Ready (High Definition) - for TVs able to receive HD broadcasts

Freeview devices meet the High Definition Digital TV Ready standard, in addition to the other Freeview standards.

Famous quotes containing the words scheme and/or government:

    The real security of Christianity is to be found in its benevolent morality, in its exquisite adaptation to the human heart, in the facility with which its scheme accommodates itself to the capacity of every human intellect, in the consolation which it bears to the house of mourning, in the light with which it brightens the great mystery of the grave.
    Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859)

    Our government is founded upon the intelligence of the people. I for one do not despair of the republic. I have great confidence in the virtue of the great majority of the people, and I cannot fear the result.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
