Complain about something on TV or radio
All broadcasters have to follow rules. These set what you can see or hear at different times and on different channels. If you think a broadcaster has broken the rules, you can complain. Most complaints must be made to the broadcaster first but some can be made to us.
Before you complain, check you are directing your complaint to the right place:
- Complaints about content on streaming services such as Netflix, Stan and Prime should be made to the service provider. We do not manage these complaints.
- Complaints about content on broadcast TV and radio should go to the broadcaster first. If you’re dissatisfied with their response, then complain to us. Keep reading to find out how to make a code complaint with a broadcaster.
- Complaints about the content of ads should go to Ad Standards.
