ACMA Proposes Changes to Primary TV Services Declaration

The Australian Media & Communications Authority (ACMA) is proposing to “remake” the Broadcasting Services (Primary Commercial Television Broadcasting Service) Declaration, which is due to sunset on 1 October 2020.

The declaration is required under the Broadcasting Services Act, and sets out the ‘primary service’ for each of the commercial TV networks in a licence area. The declaration formally sets out the ‘primary service’ for each of the commercial TV networks in a licence area. A primary service has special obligations compared to other services. These relate to:

  • content
  • captioning
  • media diversity
  • other responsibilities

The ACMA is seeking views on the proposals in its consultation paper.
