The Minister for Regional Communications, Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie, has announced the Department of Communications and the Arts will undertake a review (the Review) of the Viewer Access Satellite Television (VAST) service. The VAST service provides satellite delivery of free-to-air (FTA) television to approximately 30,000 travellers and 200,000 households unable to receive reliable local terrestrial transmissions. These latter are largely in regional and remote locations.
