What is on your free to air stations, & how many of them are there?
We have three main comercial channels which screen popular tv & movies (predominantly USA stuff) & reality TV. These get the highest ratings.
One government suppported channel (ABC) which is currently comercial free and shows many documentries, foreign films, art house films and a very good music show as well as stuff like government questiion time (I think similar to PBS?). One of the least cappitalist-biased channels (which is amusiing because its government suppported, but as such they have a lot of regulations) , if you want more facts than hype you turn here or SBS.
SBS: has commercials but is similar to ABC in content. Not government supported.
OH! & we now have TVS... yeah... kinda community funded things... not quite quality programming...
