Community television services are currently broadcast to four state capitals:
- Adelaide—44 Adelaide
- Brisbane—31 Digital TV Brisbane
- Melbourne—C31 TV Melbourne
- Perth—West TV (WTV).
After 31 December 2016, the metropolitan community television services will need to make their content available online. The Australian Government is providing them with some financial assistance through the Community Broadcasting Foundation to make this transition.
