Access for Bunbury

ACCESS 31 has extended its community television coverage to the Bunbury region, which could facilitate regional television production in years to come.

According to Access 31 chairman Bill McGinnis the extension of services is the result of negotiations with Federal broadcasting authorities.

“We have been in lengthy negotiations with the Australian Broadcasting Authority to get a licence and the service has been made possible by using down time from the State Government’s satellite television service,” Mr McGinnis said.

Bunbury Mayor John Castrilli is hopeful the new free-to-air station will provide development opportunities for the region.

“If this pilot project proves its feasibility, there are endless possibilities for the Bunbury community to get involved in making its own programs,” Mr Castrilli said.

Albany was the first WA region to receive access to the community television station in December 2002.
