The majority of Australians receive TV signals from local transmission towers. However, there will always be places that cannot receive a reliable TV signal from a tower and need to rely on satellite. The Viewer Access Satellite Television (VAST) service provides free-to-air TV services over satellite for around 200,000 homes and businesses in mainly regional and remote locations where reliable reception is not available. VAST is also used by people who have mobile homes and caravans, with mobile satellite reception equipment.
