Gambling ad crackdown extends to online streaming services
After partially banning gambling advertisements during the broadcast of live sports on free-to-air and commercial television last month, the ACMA has proposed mirrored restrictions for online streaming services.
Under the suggested rules, gambling advertisements would be prohibited during live sports streams from 5am to 8:30pm. “The proposed rules will bring together a ‘safe zone’ across traditional and new media platforms, with a particular focus on when children are a part of the audience,” said ACMA Chair, Nerida O’Loughlin.
