 Tuning In

Tuning in to Wairarapa TV is easy.
You need a UHF aerial pointed at Popoiti hill (the big hill behind Carterton towards the coast) and either a Television set with a built in Freeview decoder or a Set top Box decoder.

Our Freeview channel number is 41.

Wairarapa TV is not broadcast over satellite so is only available in the Wairarapa using a UHF antenna. You will find the picture quality of all the other channels is also much better if you use a UHF aerial so it's worth the upgrade if you are still using an old Sky Dish. If you are outside the green area or are a Sky subscriber, you can download our free phone apps to stream Wairarapa TV live from anywhere.

You can find more information about tuning in from the freeview website below:
