Just seven days until it was set to disappear forever from Australian television, community TV has been granted three more years of free-to-air broadcasting after an amendment to broadcasting legislation passed in the Australian Senate and House of Representatives, cementing community broadcasting licences for C44 Adelaide and C31 Melbourne until 30 June 2024.
Following Wednesday’s COVID 19 restriction updates in Victoria, the 2021 Antenna Awards will not go ahead this Saturday, 29th of May. It is with great consideration and disappointment that the Awards Committee have decided to reschedule the event to Saturday, June 19th at 7:30pm. The awards ceremony will still take place at Federation Square’s Deakin
C44 has a bevy of new and returning SA-made programs airing in May! With new episodes of favourites like Get Hooked with Team Justagirl to great new shows like The Holistic Approach and Cooking Just4Me: My Taste, No Waste, there’s plenty of great local content—programs made by our community for our community—to watch while we’re huddled inside!
C44 is pleased to announce the full list of nominees for the Antenna Awards 2021, recognising outstanding achievements in community television production.
ACTA urges the Federal Government to include C31 Melbourne and C44 Adelaide in its proposed media reforms and not end free-to-air community TV in Australia.
Entries are open now for the 2021 Antenna Awards to recognise outstanding achievements in community television production at an award ceremony on May 29 in Melbourne in conjunction with our community TV partners C31 Melbourne.
