The Government is seeking community and industry input to establish the best way to support children’s television in future.

The ACTF believes we need a new policy framework, which includes:

- Adequate funding and specific requirements to ensure that the ABC provides appropriate levels of Australian children’s content;

- A new regulatory framework to be applied to all the major content service providers in Australia which ensures that they either commission and screen appropriate levels of Australian children’s content OR contribute to a contestable content fund; and

- The creation of a contestable content fund to support distinctively Australian children’s content.
