About this inquiry

The bill proposes to amend the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 to repeal the ’75 per cent audience reach rule’ and the ‘2 out of 3 rule cross-media control rule’. The bill would also amend and introduce some additional local programming obligations for regional commercial television broadcasting licensees, where, as a result of a change in control, their licences become part of a group of commercial television licences whose combined licence area populations exceed 75 per cent of the Australian population.
