The Australian subscription media industry is one of the nation's most vibrant and creative.
Since its inception in the 1990s, the subscription media industry has provided Australians with access to more than 100 new television channels, substantially increasing the amount and quality of entertainment, news and information available in this country.
The industry has created thousands of new jobs, invested billions in the local production sector, and added billions more to the size of the Australian economy. Today the industry employs 8370 Australians in jobs as diverse as television presenting, acting, scheduling, production, marketing and promo production.
With the arrival of Internet television and the convergence of telecommunications and broadcasting, the subscription media sector has a bright future.
