On 20 August 2009, the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, announced the release of a discussion paper 'Sport on Television: A Review of the Anti-siphoning Scheme in the Contemporary Digital Environment'.
This paper was intended to stimulate public debate about the scheme and inform the Australian Government's considerations of the effectiveness and appropriateness of the anti-siphoning scheme in the contemporary digital television environment.
Members of the public were encouraged to obtain a copy of this paper and submit their comments on the issues raised. A copy of the discussion paper is available via the link below.
