To satisfy the demand for national pay TV programming, several new companies were formed in the mid 1990s, to produce programming for the new pay services. Many started and many failed to secure contracts with the distribution networks of the pay TV operators. This report indicates how difficult it has been to access the Foxtel, Optus and Austar networks, listing a number of content providers that failed to secure access. It also introduces some of the national arrangements that have emerged, including some leading international companies with an Australian presence. Useful statistics on production activity by broadcasters and pay TV channel providers is also given.
