Abstract

On July 1, 2016, the Nine Network abandoned its long-term regional affiliation agreement with WIN Television in favour of a new five-year deal to supply programs to Southern Cross Austereo. This realignment of metropolitan and regional commercial television interests was the latest move in a game of regulatory, economic, corporate, political and technological brinkmanship that began more than 60 years ago, and which is likely to end in the demise of regional commercial television as an independent if not distinct entity in Australia.
