Global Television[1] is a large television production company with studios in Australia's two largest cities Sydney and Melbourne. It was co-founded in 1988[2] by Bruce Fink.[3] They have been responsible for handling the technical side of most top live sport and entertainment events produced and broadcast in Australia.[4]

Global Television's Sydney studios are located at the Australian Technology Park in the inner city suburb of Eveleigh. The new studios were built in 2010, and produce a large number of Australian programmes from its two studios.

Global Television's Melbourne studios are located in the inner suburb of South Melbourne and occupy the previous existing HSV-7 Studios. The four open studios are home to such shows as Dancing with the Stars, The Chase Australia, Family Feud and Fox Footy.[5]

Global Television also occupies the former ATV-10 Studios in the outer suburb of Nunawading where Neighbours is produced at Forest Hill.

Acquired[edit]

In January 2014 NEP Broadcasting acquired Global Television for an undisclosed amount from Catalyst Investments and Global Television is now completely part of the NEP worldwide network.[6] NEP also acquired Harry Michaels Silk Studios (formerly zerO1zerO) in the same year, reducing the number of competing O.B. and studio production hire facilities.
