Outcome

On 22 September 2020, following the analysis of submissions, the ACMA made the Broadcasting Services (Primary Commercial Television Broadcasting Service) Declaration 2020.

The issue

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:

  • content
  • captioning
  • media diversity
  • other responsibilities.
