I need the technical details of the broadcast.
31 Digital’s digital service is broadcast from the Mt. Coo-tha site on UHF channel 32 (frequency 599.5 MHz).
The transmission uses QPSK modulation, and carries a single standard definition television channel in MPEG2 format.
The logical channel number of the service is Channel 44.
What could be the problem if I still can't get 31 Digital?
There are potential issues in apartment buildings, such as antennas and filters which are designed specifically for the existing channels - so the antenna system might be filtering out any signal that's broadcast on UHF. It's something that you'd have to take up with the body corporate to find out the exact details of what equipment they have and what it's doing to the signal.
Otherwise, you may live outside of our licence area, or you may be located in a shadow area which doesn't receive a clear signal from Mt Coo-tha. Unfortunately these problems are out of our control, and we suggest that you speak with an Antenna specialist or you can watch 31 Digital original content on our official YouTube Channel.
