In Australia, free-to-air television and radio broadcasting is provided by commercial organisations, a number of community groups and the Australian Government. Subscriber or pay TV is also an option for most Australians.
The ABS has conducted several surveys relating to various aspects of broadcasting over the years. The most recent is the 2006-07 Television, Film and Video Production and Post-Production Services survey, which surveyed all 24 commercial free-to-air and 13 subscription television broadcasting businesses operating in Australia in 2006-07.
Businesses owned and controlled by the public and mainly engaged in community broadcasting were excluded.
