Synopsis

In late 2002 Optus was given the go-ahead to hand over its content arrangements to Foxtel. This is now creating a monopoly in some of the most critical content areas. Optus will concentrate on the delivery of various services over its network. However, immediately following the deal its iTV plans and other new developments were cancelled. Telstra has since started to bundle pay TV into its telecommunications services. By early 2003, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) started to investigate the wider impact of the deal on the Australian media landscape.
