Open narrowcasting overview

Open narrowcasting services are broadcasting services whose reception is limited in at least one of a number of ways specified in section 18 of the Broadcasting Services Act 1992:

  • by being targeted to special interest groups;
  • by being intended for limited locations (e.g. arenas or business premises);
  • by being provided during a limited period or to cover a special event;
  • because they provide programs of limited appeal;
  • or for some other reason.
