More than 56 per cent of Australian households have made the switch to digital free-to-air television, according to a Federal Government survey.

The figure comes from the 3rd Digital Tracker Survey, a quarterly analysis of national digital television take-up, awareness and attitudes. It also found that 36 percent of digital TV viewers said they liked the better quality picture, while 28 liked getting more channels and choice. Some 16 percent hailed the better reception.

Broadband and Comms Minister Stephen Conroy at the weekend confirmed Mildura and the Sunraysia region will be the first to switch to digital-only broadcast when analog TV is switched off there on June 30 next year.

Already 79 percent of households in the region have made the switch, he said.

Other confirmed switch-off dates are June 3 2013 for Brisbane and Perth; and December 31 2013 for Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. Switchover dates in other regions will be announced as the program progresses, Conroy said.
