What is VAST?

The Australian Government funds a free to air satellite service – the Viewer Access Satellite Television (VAST). VAST provides digital television to viewers in remote areas of Australia who currently rely on analogue services from the Optus Aurora platform; as well as viewers who are unable to receive digital TV through their normal antenna because of issues relating to local interference, terrain or distance from the transmitter in their area.
