PacificAus TV is a program of the Australian Government that complements a range of initiatives to enhance Australia’s engagement in the Pacific.


The objective of the program is to project an accurate image of modern Australia through increased access to high quality, trusted and credible content, contributing to a diversity of media in the Indo-Pacific.

PacificAus TV achieves this objective by making the broadcast rights to a wide variety of Australian commercial television content available to broadcast partners in Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Samoa, Kiribati, Tuvalu, and Nauru.

This includes making rights available to at least 2,000 hours per year of premium Australian commercial television programs including lifestyle programs, news, current affairs, children’s programs, drama, reality TV and sport.

This enables broadcast partners to make independent decisions on the programming of the content provided, ensuring the content broadcast meets audience and broadcasting needs and complies with all relevant requirements within each jurisdiction.

The intended outcome of the program is to maintain Australia’s broadcasting voice in the Indo-Pacific region by providing compelling content to PacificAus TV broadcast partners.

Providing news and information content strengthens Australia’s contribution to discussion on issues of regional importance, whilst entertainment content showcases Australia’s lifestyle and culture.


The PacificAus TV program is proudly delivered by Free TV Australia.
