SelecTV is an Australian satellite based subscription television broadcasting service headed by CEO Jim Blomfield (previously CEO of Foxtel). In April 2006 the company said it had 2000 customers.[1] In August 2006, 50.1% and control was purchased by WIN Corporation. WIN Corporation has since acquired 100% ownership and full control. Services are carried on the Intelsat 8 satellite.[2]

The company said that it is focused on providing premium content in comparatively low priced packages to a number of specialised market segments, including those with a LOTE first language, retirees and regional Australia.

Selectv also broadcasts channels in languages other than English including Spanish, Greek, and Italian. It also used to carry German and Vietnamese packages; however, they were discontinued in 2007.
