NEWS R-rating ban for NT Cable TV channels hit Rebecca Lollback PAY TV subscribers across the Territory will not be able to access R-rated television programs if new Federal Government legislation is passed. The legislation was introduced to Federal Parliament by Indigenous Affairs Minister Mal Brough yesterday. It would amend the Broadcasting Services Act so that R 18+ programs would be prohibited in prescribed Aboriginal communities. But regional pay TV provider Austar said the ban would have to apply across the whole Territory. Spokeswoman Emma Rackley said: We wouldnt be able to stop those programs in just some areas. This is just proposed legislation at the moment it hasnt been passed by Parliament yet. But yes, that would be our reaction. Ms Rackley said people who had subscribed to 18+ programs would be entitled to discounts on their service. She said: If people have paid for content that they are not receiving, then of course we would not make them pay for it. For example, if they had subscribed to World Movies or the odd adult channel. Were opposed to this legislation and we wouldnt want to make it any harder for people than it already is. Mr Brough said some indigenous women in Alice Springs were also concerned about free-to-air television. He said: The women actually said to me their greatest concern of television type programs was SBS, believe it or not. Pornography bans came into effect in the Territory last week. Anyone caught with pornographic DVDs or magazines could face fines up to $11,000. People with five or more prohibited items could face $22,000 fines or up to two years in jail. Public computers with internet access will also be monitored for pornographic material.
