Australia Television International
Australia Television International (the forerunner to ABC Australia) was launched on 17 February 1993. Radio Australia had been operating as part of the ABC since 1939 while the passing of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Act in 1983 allowed the Corporation to operate an additional international television service.
ABC Asia Pacific
Australia Television was later replaced with ABC Asia Pacific on 1 January 2002, with content from the Seven Network, Nine Network, Network 10, and the ABC's own original content, as well as news bulletins produced by Sky News Australia.
ABC Asia Pacific changed its name to Australia Network on 7 August 2006, at the same time introducing a number of new programs, as well as the expansion of its existing news programs and English-language learning programs.
Australia Plus, a new multi-platform international service, was launched on 29 September 2014 as a replacement of Australia Network. The channel continued to broadcast entertainment, sports, education and English learning shows from the ABC through its Asia and Pacific partners.
Australia Plus was rebranded as ABC Australia on 1 July 2018 to bring the channel in line with the main ABC brand.
