Screen Australia's report, Convergence 2011: Australian Content State of Play, examines the state of local content across the $6.3 billion free-to-air and subscription television sectors. It finds that Australian material is dwindling.

"Audiences are fragmenting away from the main FTA channels to multi-channels that have no Australian content requirements and this has resulted in a significant decline in the diet of Australian content," Screen Australia’s Fiona Cameron said yesterday, when launching the report in Canberra.
