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 2002-03 Television, Film and Video Production Survey, which surveyed all 27 commercial free-to-air and six subscription television broadcasting businesses operating in Australia in 2002-03.
Businesses owned and controlled by the public and mainly engaged in community broadcasting were excluded.
