The first television services in Australia were introduced in 1956. Today television broadcasting includes a wide range of public, subscription, commercial, narrowcast, community, and amateur stations across the country. By 1960, more than 70 percent of homes in Melbourne and Sidney had a television set. Color television was introduced in 1975. Within five years, over 80 percent of homes had a color television set.

This country has three national public broadcasters: the National Indigenous Television, the Special Broadcasting Service (SBS), and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). The National Indigenous Television is the most recent TV station. Australians also have access to a number of regional television networks, including Southern Cross Television, NBN Television, and the Seven Network.
