Learn if the end of the D2 Satellite steam will impact you.

D2 Satellite Decommission

At GOOD, we know it’s not always easy to understand the tech talk behind the various ways you can watch GOOD. This page will help you determine if the end of the Optus D2 Satellite Stream will impact you. 

Why is this change happening?

Optus provides the D2 Satellite stream which has enabled viewers to access GOOD via a satellite service. Optus has confirmed that as of March 31, 2023, this satellite stream will be decommissioned. This means that GOOD, along with a range of other broadcasters, will no longer be available to watch via this satellite service from this date.

For the majority of our viewers, this change will not have an impact, and you will be able to continue to watch GOOD in the same way you are now. Use the checklist below to help confirm if you are affected.

These viewers WON’T be impacted by this change:

  • You’re watching via a Foxtel Subscription
    • you have a “Foxtel” branded remote & a box connected to your TV
    • you receive the Foxtel Magazine/Program Guide in your mail
    • you receive regular billing from Foxtel
  • You’re watching via FetchTV
    • you have a “Fetch” branded remote & box connected to your TV
    • you may have arranged Fetch as part of your internet bundle or bought the Fetch box from an electronics store
  • You’re watching online using watchgood.com or feelgood.watchgood.com in your internet browser.
  • You’re watching via the GOOD App on a Smart TV, Apple TV, Smartphone or Tablet 

These viewers WILL be impacted by this change and will need to access GOOD via one of the alternate unaffected options above:

  • You’re watching via an Instal-Life Satellite connection:
    • you have an “Instal-life” branded remote & a box connected to your TV
    • you may have organised your connection through: mychristiantv.com.au
    • you receive emails/mail from Instal-Life
    • you may be contributing with monthly payments to Instal-life’s Missions Plan subscription service.
  • You have had a satellite dish and set-top box installed by an electrician or TV installer.
  • You have purchased a satellite dish and set-top box from an electronics retailer and installed these yourself.

If you are still not sure if you will be impacted by these changes, request a support phone call from GOOD to help review your current connection.
