Analyst: Paul Budde


The first major initiatives dates back to 1994 fuelled by the cable and pay TV activities of those days. Regional cable TV operators showed significant eagerness to get their cable systems in the ground in regional Australia. Austar, Neighbourhood and Northgate all rolled out cable. However, failure to obtain affordable access to entertainment access made it impossible for most to get off the ground. The collapse of pay TV operator Australis in May 1998 left only three major operators: Foxtel, Optus and Austar. A major industry restructuring was launched in late 2002.
