Don't regional broadcasters receive financial assistance to aid the transition to digital?

Over recent years, regional broadcasters have received $260m in taxpayer money to fund the digital transition and a 50 percent reduction in license fees. Hasn't that been enough to help? 

Answer

This is far less than the major networks have received or the tax breaks that companies like Google and Netflix enjoy which simply aren’t available to regional broadcasters. If anything, despite Government support we are worse off than we were and certainly worse off relative to the capital city networks compared to a few years ago.
