Right now we are seeing less and less Australian content on our television screens. The commercial networks are increasingly airing local sport rather than local drama to secure big audiences. Under a bizarre international trade ruling programs from New Zealand count as local content here. Netflix is under pressure in some jurisdictions to provide local content. But the reality is this will only ever be a small percentage of its overall offering.
Until it was killed-off by the communications department taking back its broadcast spectrum community television provided a wealth of diverse locally made content.
