ABC looks to cut $4m Foxtel deal

The ABC is negotiating with News Corp's Foxtel to end a $4 million-a-year deal allowing Australians to watch the public broadcaster's content on the pay-TV platform.

ABC managing director David Anderson told staff this week he had been in talks with Foxtel for months about stopping the payment as one of several savings measures the taxpayer-funded network is considering after the Coalition government froze its $1 billion annual budget.
