TV and radio broadcasts

University of South Australia staff are able to copy and communicate television and radio broadcasts from free-to-air, satellite and cable services for the educational purposes of the University without obtaining permission from the copyright owners.


Any television or radio broadcast can be copied, including podcasts of broadcasts originally aired as free-to-air broadcasts and available from the broadcaster’s website (e.g. podcasts of ABC programmes originally screened on TV). This does not include subscription services such as Presto, Stan and Netflix.


To make content from these services (and other commercially purchased content) available online will generally require permission. For assistance with obtaining permission please contact Ask The Library.
