A commercial radio or television licensee is required under the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 (Cwlth.) to provide a service that, when considered together with other broadcasting services available in the licence area, contributes to the provision of an adequate and comprehensive range of broadcasting services in that licence area.

Two commercial TV stations are available throughout most of Tasmania. WIN carries Channel Nine network programs and Southern Cross carries a composite of Channel Seven and Channel Ten programs.

Tasmania had 12 commercial radio broadcasting services at July 2003, with six operating on the AM band and six operating on the FM band. Commercial FM radio broadcasting services are provided only in particular areas of the state, because AM provides a better reception in mountainous areas.
