Broadcast frequencies are changing in the Nelson region 

Freeview viewers may need to retune their TV or set-top box when the broadcast frequencies change in the Nelson region on Tuesday 14 August.

The changes only affect Freeview terrestrial viewers who receive signals from the Botanical Ridge and Mt Campbell transmitters. They will not affect Sky subscribers, analogue TV viewers or Freeview satellite TV viewers.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s Radio Spectrum Policy and Planning Manager Len Starling said: “Affected viewers will see a message pop up on their TV screens this week, prompting them to retune when the frequencies change. Retuning can be done simply using the remote control.”

“Those who watch Freeview TV and share an aerial with others, such as in an apartment building or retirement village, should contact their property manager for advice on whether their installation requires any modification.” 

Managers of apartments, hotels or motels are advised to talk to an installer prior to the frequencies being changed, to see if any technical adjustments are needed.
The channel frequencies are changing to ensure that New Zealand’s radio spectrum is freed up for other uses and emerging technologies.

Got one of these leaflets in the letterbox over the weekend. DVB-T freeveiw has been in Nelson for less than a year, so why didn't they start it off on these new freqs?

Hi All, Being a rather clueless Geek I've spent two days trying to find the DVB-T frequncies for the Nelson region (Mt Campbell) only to find they're all out of date. The frequencies posted here did'nt work for me until I tried the following using ScanChannelsBDA.

570 MHz
634 MHz
682 MHz

Hope this helps, Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, I'll now get on with trying EPG Collector for the umpteenth time..WinkSorry I don't know for Botanical Ridge/Kaka Hill, maybe another combination of the other posts.
