Sport on television: a review of the anti-siphoning scheme in the contemporary digital environment

21 Aug 2009
Description

This paper is intended to stimulate public debate about the anti‑siphoning scheme and inform the federal government's considerations of the effectiveness and appropriateness of the scheme in the current environment.

The anti-siphoning scheme was introduced in 1994 to ensure that events of national importance and cultural significance were made freely available to the Australian public. Comments are sought on topics such as the effectiveness of the scheme, the rationale for including events on the anti-siphoning list and the rules governing the coverage of those events on free-to-air digital multi-channels.
