[UPDATE from ABC, 16 September 2015. VTV is changing over from analogue TV to digital TV and the new Australia Plus TV service is on the new HD Digital service.

All the channels on the old analogue service will shut down soon and be available only on the HD digital service. So what our viewers need to do if the cannot currently view Australia Plus TV on channel 199 is to contact the VTV Cable hotline. They can then request the changeover to HD Digital for the Australia Plus service. VTV will supply them with a new set top box and tune the channel and all the other channels in for them.]


The ABC has just confirmed with AusCham this morning that Australia Plus TV has been re-launched in Vietnam. As of last night!

You can watch it on VTV Cable Channel 199 and also ONEtv channel 177.

The ABC further advises that it will roll out other platforms and cable operators over the “next few months”.

Good times ahead for those watching lots of things – including the AFL Finals Series and Grand Final! Click here for details of some AFL Grand Final events being held across Vietnam. Click here for details of the AusCham Scrambles to be held on the eve of the AFL and NRL Grand Finals.
