ACMA seems to provide just two principles:

>  1) Each FTA broadcaster should provide EPG data that is freely available
>  2) Broadcast EPG data should provide critical information

A couple of nights ago, I retuned my TV and was pleasantly surprised with
the increased choice of channels available in Sydney.

Perhaps for novelty, I ended up watching NITV.
<http://nitv.org.au/>

In addition, to NITV, there seemed to be:
*ABC One and Two(HD/SD),
*One - a new sports channel
*SBS One and Two
*Teachers Channel (also broadcasting both houses of federal parliament)
*Channel 44 (NSW Government) broadcasting ads for ABS publications and RTA 
Traffic camera footage.
*Channel 9s EPG
*Channel 7/9/10 (HD/SD)
*An integrated EPG of what's on now and coming up
