ParlTV provides access to live televised coverage of House of Representatives, Senate, and selected Parliamentary Committee hearings held in Australian Parliament House. ParlTV content is provided by the broadcasting section of the Department of Parliamentary Services (DPS), and distributed to Commonwealth entities via the ICON network within the ACT region only.
The ParlTV charging model is as follows:
- initial fees to install infrastructure and connect the relevant endpoints requested by the Commonwealth entity are charged on a full cost recovery basis
- Commonwealth entities are separately invoiced on an annual basis by DPS for content
- costs associated with any fault repair that is not a failure of GNSB supplied equipment (misuse or damage) is passed through to the Commonwealth entity on a full cost recovery basis
- de-commissioning fees in relation to the removal of Parl TV infrastructure and disconnection of the relevant endpoints requested by the Commonwealth entity are passed through on a full cost recovery basis.
