The Perth Educational Television (PET) Project delivered educational television to schools in Perth during 1993 through a narrowcast system using Multipoint Distribution System (MDS) technology. A comprehensive program of 200 hours of television was delivered from Edith Cowan University and beamed through the metropolitan area of Perth in a trial project that investigated the potential of a pay TV service for education. This paper describes the context in which the PET Project was undertaken. It discusses the organisation and activity within the participating schools and investigates the value, potential and viability of future educational pay TV systems.
