BROADCASTING SERVICES ACT 1992 - SECT 96

Allocation of other subscription television broadcasting licences

             (1)  The ACMA may allocate to a person, on application in writing by the person, a subscription television broadcasting licence.

             (2)  Licences under subsection (1) are to be allocated on the basis of one licence per service.

             (4)  Applications must:

                     (a)  be in accordance with a form approved in writing by the ACMA; and

                     (b)  be accompanied by the application fee determined by the ACMA.

             (5)  The ACMA must not allocate a subscription television broadcasting licence under this section if the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has reported, within 30 days after being requested for a report under section 97, that, in the opinion of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the allocation of the licence to the applicant:

                     (a)  would constitute a contravention of section 50 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 if the allocation of the licence were the acquisition by the applicant of an asset of a body corporate; and

                     (b)  would not be authorised under section 88 of that Act if the applicant had applied for such an authorisation.

             (6)  If a licence is allocated under this section, the ACMA must publish in the Gazette the name of the successful applicant.
