Digital Action Plan released

Minister for Communications, Senator Helen Coonan announced the release of the “Digital Action Plan” on the 23rd November with the aim of helping to guide Australia’s transition to digital television. Called “Ready, Get Set, Go Digital” the action plan outlines the key steps the government will take on the road to a digital switchover. This includes the creation of a dedicated switchover body dubbed “Digital Australia“ tasked with coordinating the efforts of the Government, industry, manufacturers, the regulators and consumers in the lead-up to switchover. Analogue switch-off is expected to take place between 2010 and 2012. Copies of the full plan can be obtained at
