Telstra sale to fund Indigenous TV programs | ABC News Online

Telstra sale to fund Indigenous TV programs. ABC News Online

I'm not real fussed on the idea of the full privatisation of Telstra, or at least the government's "have-your cake-and-eat-it-too" mentality, but I can think of a lot worse ways to spend the money when it inevitably happens.

"The Federal Government will use $50 million from the sale of Telstra for a new Indigenous television service

National Indigenous Television will receive funding to produce the service over four years.

It will be broadcast on Imparja's second channel."

So it looks like Imparja's getting their own version of ABC2, only with phenomenally higher funding. Good luck to them I say.
