DRAFT VARIATIONS TO DIGITAL CHANNEL PLANS FOR REMOTE CENTRAL AND EASTERN AUSTRALIA

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (the ACMA) is seeking comment on proposed changes to the National and Commercial Digital Channel Plans for Remote Central and Eastern Australia.

The ACMA is proposing to vary the above digital channel plans to facilitate rollout of digital television services in remote central and eastern Australia by providing for ‘restack-proof’ channels as far as possible, restacking four currently operating national television services and permanently allotting channels to broadcasters.

These proposed changes are contained in the Draft variation to National Digital Channel Plan Remote Central and Eastern Australia and the Draft variation to Commercial Digital Channel Plan Remote Central and Eastern Australia and are discussed in an accompanying discussion paper and engineering report.

These documents are available on the ACMA’s website at www.acma.gov.au or by calling (02) 6219 5279.

Submissions on the matters raised may be made to the ACMA as follows:

 

By email:                     dtls@acma.gov.au

 

By mail:                       Draft DCP Variations for RCEA
