The broadcast industry in Australia has experienced inordinate change over the past decade, and most significantly over the last year with the formation of Free TV and Freeview. Since 2001 all of the Free-to-Air broadcasters have been simulcasting their primary channels in both analogue and digital – however eventually the analogue transmission will be switched off. Digital transmission has now been available in for more than 10 years after commencing back in 2001. Full digital conversion will be completed by end-2013 after the gradual phasing out of analogue transmission that commenced in 2010 and has continued on a region-by-region basis.

This report provides an extensive overview of Australia’s Free-to-Air broadcasting market. Market rationalisation together with merger and acquisitions over the last few years have seen some minor changes to the market. Included in the report are overviews of all the major commercial and public broadcasters – Nine Network, Seven Network, Network Ten, ABC, SBS, and the regional players, as well as an overview of community and indigenous broadcasting.
