DTT in 47% of homes

In the latest Digital Tracker report for Q1 2009, commissioned by the Australian government, the percentage figure for conversion to digital television is given as 47% of households, nearly half the population. The report goes on to say that 82% of households are aware of the digital switchover, but less than 1% when the switchover will be completed in their own region.
One of the highest conversion rates is in Mildura/Sunraysia at 70% compared with 25% in Central and Eastern Australia.
The figures reported were compiled from answers given during 9900 telephone interviews conducted by Newpoll.
