Entertainment, gambling technology, regulation and consumers

Australia's entertainment industries, such as media and gambling, are being transformed by significant changes in technology, regulation and consumer taste.

The convergence of computing and information technologies and the rapid and continued increase in data speeds and bandwidth has made the Internet a key distribution channel for gambling and media.

The community-wide interest and social impacts of these entertainment industries also create intense media and community scrutiny. These characteristics present challenges for governments and the industries themselves in terms of regulation, management, development and operation.
