Austria's public broadcaster, Oesterreichischer Rundfunk (ORF), has long-dominated the airwaves. Lately, it has faced competition from private broadcasters, particularly in Vienna.
Private broadcasting in Austria is a recent development. Local commercial radio was given the green light in the 1990s. A national TV licence was granted to commercial station ATV - which opened in 2000 - and local TV stations have sprung up.
Cable or satellite TV is available in most Austrian homes and is often used to watch German stations, some of which tailor their output for local viewers.
A daily newspaper is a must for many Austrians. National and regional titles contest fiercely for readers.
There were 6.14 million internet users by June 2010, around 75 per cent of the population (InternetWorldStats.com).
