Vast – Viewer Access Satellite Television

The Australian Government funds a free-to-air satellite service – Viewer Access Satellite Television (VAST). VAST provides digital television to viewers in remote areas of Australia who are unable to receive digital TV through their normal TV antenna due to local interference, terrain or distance from the transmitter in their area.

You can register for a VAST service by going here to register for vast. To access VAST you will need to register your details including your address, reception location and smart card number.

To access VAST you will need to buy a VAST certified satellite set top box and a satellite dish of at least 65cm diameter. Contact the Antenna Company to arrange a  satellite dish installer to determine the best dish size for your specific location. Access to VAST is controlled by the smart card supplied with your satellite set top box.
