The Broadcasting Services (Primary Commercial Television Broadcasting Service) Declaration is due to sunset on 1 October 2020. We are proposing to remake the declaration, with minor updates to its schedules.
The declaration is required under clause 41G of Schedule 4 of the Broadcasting Services Act 1992.
The declaration formally sets out the ‘primary service’ for each of the commercial TV networks in a licence area. A primary service has special obligations compared to other services. These relate to:
- media diversity
- other responsibilities.
Have your say
The ACMA is seeking public comment on the issues in the consultation paper and our proposal to remake the Primary TV Services Declaration.
