Utilities and TV/Radio Suppliers in Adelaide and South Australia


One of the first things you will sort out on arriving in Adelaide is a new home. Once you have found somewhere to live you will need to arrange your utilities (gas, electric, phone services etc) to be connected. Many rental companies offer a free service where they arrange this for you at no extra charge - bear in mind if you choose this option you are restricting your choice and may not end up with the best deal for you!

The main suppliers will have their plans and costs listed and there are comparison sites you can check out to make sure you get a company you are happy with and the most cost effective for you. Please see our phones and broadband page for info on these services.

Just as in the UK, Australia has both Freeview and Foxtel/Austar (similar to Sky TV in the UK) pay TV. Below we have included links to the info for the different package available on pay TV and the channel info for Freeview. We have also included the websites for the major radio stations around Adelaide.
