The Best of Australian Commercial Network Television
PacificAus TV is a program of the Australian Government that complements a range of initiatives to enhance Australia’s engagement in the Pacific.
Free TV Australia was selected to work with Australian commercial free-to-air television networks and Pacific Partner Broadcasters to supply, free of charge, premium Australian content across the Pacific.
The initiative enables additional Australian content to be provided to existing Pacific broadcasters for them to broadcast within their program schedules. This enables Pacific partners to make independent decisions on the programming of the content provided to ensure the content broadcast meets audience and broadcasting needs and complies with all relevant requirements within their territory.
The objective of the PacificAus TV initiative is to make the broadcast rights to a variety of Australian television programs available to Pacific broadcast partners in Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Tonga, Samoa and Nauru. This will include 1,000 hours per year for three years of content including lifestyle programs, factual programs, children’s programs, drama, reality TV and sport.
