Important satellite transmission changes
IS-5 at 169°E
From January 15, 2009 Australia Network will cut over from IS2 to IS5. At this time viewers accessing our Pacific service will be required to re-tune satellite reception equipment. The IS5 satellite will replace IS2 in the same orbital location and it will not be necessary for viewers to re-point their satellite dishes.
