To continue to receive the six digital TV programme channels (RTHK TV 31, RTHK TV 32, RTHK TV 33, Jade 81, ViuTVsix 96 and ViuTV 99) transmitted on the new frequencies, you may need to perform the rescanning on your TV set / DTT receiver. Please be reminded that there is no need to replace your existing TV set / DTT receiver.

If you use a common antenna broadcast distribution (CABD) system / in-building coaxial cable distribution system (IBCCDS) for TV reception, you should check with your building management office on whether and when you would need to rescan the digital TV programme channels on your TV set / DTT receiver.

If you use a self-provided TV antenna, you will only need to rescan the digital TV programme channels on your TV set / DTT receiver if you cannot receive any of the six digital TV programme channels on or after 1 December 2021. You are advised not to perform any rescanning in advance.
