Synopsis

This report has been archived and was last updated in 2005. The Foxtel-Optus content sharing arrangement of 2002 aimed to stimulate take-up but this didn’t eventuate. The digital free-to-air (FTA) market is going nowhere, as initiatives of governments all around the world including Australia have failed to take off. However, the arrival of digital pay TV is allowing for new services, but the business model still doesn’t stack up. Unless pay TV customers are given choices, they will continue to look for alternatives.
