Customer Question
How do I add...

How do I add channel SBS (Hobart Tasmania) to my Panasonic TV?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact model of your Panasonic? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Panasonic Viera about 6 years old

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Only in the past week or so. Several programs have been breaking up recently. I have updated the channel list but SBS has dropped out.

You will need to try retuning the TV.

If that doesn't work then reception may currently be poor in your area - you can try using a larger antenna, or fit a signal booster to your antenna cable:
