Seven West Media announces new operating model

Statement from Seven about Communications Legislation Amendment

Statement from Seven about Communications Legislation Amendment – Seven West Media welcomes the release of details of a new prominence framework and an updated anti-siphoning scheme through the Communications Legislation Amendment (Prominence and Anti-siphoning) Bill 2023.

Seven West Media Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, James Warburton, said:

“The new prominence framework ensures that free local TV services are easily discoverable and acknowledges the importance of these service in a modern TV environment.

“We appreciate the Government updating the anti-siphoning scheme to ensure online services cannot acquire the free-to-air TV rights before the broadcasters have had an opportunity. However, by not including the free digital rights, Australians who only access free TV services through the internet may be deprived of free iconic Australian sports.

“We look forward to working constructively with the Government to ensure these reforms are truly modernising and take into account how Australians are watching and will be watching TV into the future.”
