NATIONAL:  The Australian Communications and Media Authority is consulting on new rules to restrict gambling advertising during live streamed sport. ‘Until now, rules restricting gambling advertising have applied to broadcasting services only,’ said ACMA Chair, Nerida O’Loughlin. ‘The new online rules will extend community safeguards online, including the banning of gambling ads during live sports streams between 5.00 am and 8.30 pm.’
