How to setup your home entertainment system

14 Jun 2018

Here's some useful tips to setup your new home theatre. The first thing is to plan where you want the equipment before starting to plug stuff in. Have you worked out where to place your speakers around your room for the best surround sound? Are your power points in the places you need them? If you have internet-enabled equipment, link every device to your home Wifi for the best connection between devices.

If your new kit includes a Telstra TV, remember you need to go online and ‘activate’ before you can start using it. You only have to do that once, and when it has been activated, you are good to roll!
