Australian Retransmission Licences

With a Screenrights licence, cable and satellite providers, mobile phone service operators, IPTV providers and other emerging technological platforms in Australia can simultaneously retransmit the free-to-air channels over their networks as part of their overall service offering.


Under the Australian Copyright Act, free to air broadcasts can be retransmitted by another service, such as pay television, provided a licence is obtained from Screenrights.

Screenrights licenses subscription service operators retransmitting free to air broadcasts, as well as retransmissions in hospitals and new housing developments.

If you are unsure as to whether you have a licence or would like to find out more, please contact us.
