The Nine Network is now simulcasting in high definition (HD) on 9HD, located on Channel 90. The new HD broadcast began at 5:00am this morning.

Channel Nine programs and sporting events, including the Third Test between Australia and New Zealand in Adelaide beginning tomorrow, will now be broadcast in high definition.

As previously revealed by DeciderTV, viewers in regional areas, or those that access Nine via Foxtel Satellite will not be able to access the new services.

To view 9HD, metro FTA viewers will need to retune your television.

·         Select Menu or Home button on remote control

·         Press OK

·         Settings or Setup

·         Press OK

·         Digital Setup

·         Press OK

·         Auto scan or Auto retune will appear

·         Press OK

·         It will take a few minutes to do the re-scan. This will search for the channel and restore it in your Digital TV or receiver

·         Press Exit


After you re-tune your TV you will have Channel 90 available if you have a HD-enabled TV. If you don’t receive Channel 90 after you re-tune then you don’t have an Mpeg 4 decoder and will not be able to receive 9HD. Viewers without an HD-enabled television will still be able to watch Channel Nine in standard definition on Channel 9/91.


For viewers with any questions regarding the re-tune, the Nine Network has set up the following contacts for further assistance:

·         Phone: Contact the 9HD Helpline number 1800 173 055

·         Online: 9jumpin.com.au

·         Email: Please email the Channel 9 Viewer Services team: 9HDViewer@nine.com.a
