The Issue
Consultation Period:  August 10, 2017 10:00 AEST to September 21, 2017 17:00 AEST

Over the past decade, fundamental changes to the way Australians consume content have taken place in the media landscape, defined by the entry of new online services offering catch up TV, streaming, subscription video on demand and user generated video. In this rapidly changing environment, we need to review our support and regulatory measures to ensure they remain fit for purpose in the digital era.

The Australian Government is undertaking the Australian and Children’s Screen Content Review to develop policy settings that will ensure Australian screen content continues to be available at home and overseas, regardless of platform.

The Review is being conducted by a taskforce made up of us, the Australian Communications and Media Authority and Screen Australia.

The taskforce has developed a consultation paper which summarises the issues and presents a number of questions for consideration. Submissions responding to the consultation paper have been published below.

While the formal consultation period for this review has ended, you can still contentreview [at] communications.gov.au (email) us your thoughts.
