The ABC has learned the National Broadband Network will begin the process of winding down its data transmission networks next year.
The ABC has confirmed to the ABC that the network will discontinue the national transmission of ABC Radio local television, radio and TV3 over the next two years.
The transition to an online and online-only approach to delivering radio and television will occur over the course of a number of months, the ABC said.
The network said it would use a combination of existing and new technology to deliver this transition.
The networks network will be rolled out over the period of September 2017 to March 2020.
The announcement follows a series of media reports about a change in the way the National Radio Commission (NRC) operates.
The NRC has said that it will phase out the national broadcast broadcasting service (broadcasting) over the coming months and that it plans to discontinue all local radio and radio broadcasting services, including ABC Radio.
The decision to phase out broadcasting will not impact ABC Local radio, ABC Radio Local TV, ABC Local TV3 or ABC Local Television.
