The Hon Nick Greiner, former premier of New South Wales, is chairman of the Australian Subscription Television and Radio Association (ASTRA). On Monday 16 August, Nick Greiner addressed the Sydney Institute to argue the case for revising the anti-syphoning legislation and for substantial deregulation in the area of free-to-air coverage of sporting events. AS he put it, “Commerical television has been loaned a scarece public asset and fiven a legistablig enshired protection to provide free digital television services. There can be no public benefit in allowing these same networks to provide subscription television service using a public asset given to them for the opposite purposes.”
