Australia - Broadcasting - Overview 2002


While the commercial TV and radio markets have remained largely unchanged during 2001, major developments are underway in the pay TV market, and the big non-event was the launch of digital TV. These developments are summarised in this report, while background material on the free-to-air TV market, pay TV and digital TV sectors is also provided. Important statistical highlights complement valuable analyses of the impending changes to pay TV, and the implications of convergence for fee-to-air services, digital TV, and broadband developments. The key developments in the radio industry are also included. This introduces the 2002 Broadcasting and Pay TV Market Australia publication.
