Sunshine Coast Digital TV Channel Re-stack was completed in 2013 to make way for new 4G / LTE wireless communications, this required relocating TV Channels between 52 and 69 and moving them below Channel 52.

Now that the Digital TV Re-stack on the Sunshine Coast is complete, Transmission of New 4G / LTE Wireless Signals from phone towers are causing TV Interference across the Sunshine Coast from Caloundra to Maroochydore and Noosa Heads.
Interference from 4G / LTE Mobile Phone Towers can cause Pixelation or the Picture Breaking up into squares and if strong enough can cause no signal to intermittently display on the TV Screen. This will require the upgrade of old TV Antennas and Amplifier boosters to block any strong TV Interference.
WIN Channel 9 Services from the Peregian Beach TV Transmitter has continuous pixelation that started on Friday 1st April 2022, parts are on order and may take 1 or 2 weeks to be fixed.
This will effect channel 9 services along the coastline from Peregian Beach, Marcus Beach, Castaways Beach, Sunrise Beach and Sunshine Beach.
