Starting next Sunday, 3 July 2022, TV broadcasters will cease analogue transmission services in western Viti Levu, and residents are advised to switch over to Walesi’s digital platform to continue viewing.
The affected areas are from Deuba to Natadola and Matawalu, Lautoka to Natovi, Tailevu.
Fijians living in these areas are encouraged to get their Walesi Set Top Box and UHF Antenna to avoid disruptions to their television services.
Walesi CEO Sanjay Maharaj said that while the Walesi teams have carried out extensive door-to-door customer visitations in these areas over the last two months, the company will be deploying additional roadshow teams from Saturday 25 June in specifically targeted areas to ensure that this transition is as smooth as possible.
“We encourage customers to contact us for any clarification or assistance,” Maharaj said. “Our goal is to ensure all Fijians have access to the world of digital television. We also encourage schools and community halls to apply for our community outreach package.”
Households earning less than $30,000 annually are eligible to receive a free Walesi set top box. Applications can be made through the Walesi website or any Walesi customer care outlets located in Suva, Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka, Ba, and Rakiraki.
Viewers can contact Walesi on their toll-free line 1525, send a message on the Walesi Fiji Facebook page, email email@example.com, visit their website at www.walesi.com.fj, or visit their nearest customer care centre.
