This article refers to the sports broadcasting contracts in Australia. For a list of other country's broadcasting rights, see Sports television broadcast contracts.

Certain sporting events are protected by Australia's Anti-siphoning laws which means free-to-air television broadcasters have the chance to bid on protected events before pay television.
