New digital-only service coming to remote central and eastern Australia
Digital commercial television services moved a step closer for remote Australia with the allocation of new licences for a third, digital-only commercial television broadcasting service in remote central and eastern Australia.
On 4 May 2010 the Australian Communications and Media Authority allocated a new licence to Central Television Pty Ltd in each of the television licence areas of Remote Central & Eastern Australia TV2 and Mt Isa TV1.
Central Television Pty Ltd is a joint venture company formed by Imparja Television Pty Ltd (IMP) and Regional Television Pty Ltd (QQQ), which are the existing commercial television broadcasting licensees for these areas. The licences were issued under section 38B of the Broadcasting Services Act 1992.
Services under these licences are required to commence within one year of allocation.
