Synopsis

Take-up for digital TV receivers has improved considerably since broadcasts began in 2001. However, by mid-2005 digital TV was still only a niche medium with penetration of only 820,000 digital TV receivers. While DSL TV is being introduced in some developed markets around the world, progress is very slow in Australia. Telstra will certainly pull out all stops to make life as difficult as possible for potential DSL TV players; however, with the new access charges, wholesale facilities such as ULL and line-sharing are looking more interesting by the day. Video-on-Demand (VoD) exhibits good potential on the new information and entertainment superhighways, but the vested interests involved are making it very difficult to come up with workable models. With mobile TV becoming available, the industry has been looking at new technologies to deliver such services in a more efficient way.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
