From 12 December 2012, you'll need to tune in to channel 34 on a Digital TV, PVR or set top box.

If you have an analogue television you'll need to connect your TV to a Digital set top box, PVR, or Digital recorder and tune in to channel 34 (previously SBS 4). If the NITV name is not appearing in your set-top box in place of SBS 4, rescan your SBS channel manually. Call 1800 500 727 if you require assistance.
