“The EU Parliament has recognised the need for a level playing field where both broadcast media and online streaming services are regulated similarly. A level playing field is good for businesses, audiences and industry.” Mr Deaner said.
“I support Free TV’s position on level playing fields. But as I have said time and again, the response to disruption is evolution, not devolution. This position of deregulating Australian content on the one hand and regulating Australian advertising on the other is absurd. A holistic approach is required.”
