TV4ME is a digital advertorial datacasting service that launched on 18 September 2011 by Prime Media Group and Brand New Media.[2] It is available to homes in the Prime7 viewing area on Channel 64, and the Seven Network/Seven Queensland viewing area on Channel 74.[3] As a datacasting channel, the content on the channel is regulated, it must consist of mostly information, and the scope for entertainment is limited. It shows mainly Australian made informational programs and infomercials,[4][5][6] and as a datacasting service is prohibited from broadcasting programs that are wholly or substantially infotainment or lifestyle programs longer than 10 minutes.[7]

History[edit]
