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 what you need to do if you’ve been affected by the end of the Optus D2 Satellite Stream. 

Why has this happened?

Optus provided 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 was to be decommissioned. This means that GOOD, along with a range of other broadcasters, is now no longer available to watch via this satellite service.
