Despite these problems, the ABC is still well-loved in Australia, and a vast amount of Australiana has come from the ABC over the years. For a list of shows that aired on the ABC, look at the list of AustralianTelevisionShows and choose every other one. ''That'' is how influential the ABC has been.

The ABC is currently coming third in TV ratings. The three commercial networks each had higher viewership than the ABC for years until it overtook Creator/NetworkTen in mid-2012.[[note]]''The Late Show'' even lampshaded this with a parody of the Creator/NineNetwork's "Still The One" promotion, with the slogan 'We're still number four!'[[/note]] Specifically because it doesn't worry about ratings, the ABC takes care of a lot of public remit programming ranging from indigenous programming and religious shows to sessions of Parliament and current-affairs shows to hours and hours' worth of kids' shows. As a result, it holds a special place in many Aussies' hearts. Its news and current-affairs service makes the commercial networks look like amateurs. Its dedication to children's television means that millions of Aussies grew up in front of the ABC. Its production of a variety of esoteric programmes (''Collectors'', ''Gardening Australia'', ''Rage'', ''Series/MediaWatch'', and ''Message Stick'') would not have even run, let alone become successful, on Aussie commercial TV. This all makes it essentially a showcase of Australian television production. It also has a ''lot'' of British programming... possibly more than many channels in Britain.

* '''[=ABC2=]''', launched March 2005. Since May 2011 it has had a programming block from 6 AM to 7 PM which is branded like a separate channel named '''ABC 4 Kids''', aimed at pre-school children.
* '''Creator/{{ABC3}}''', launched December 2009: Australia's only free-to-air channel purely for children, aimed at a slightly older audience than ABC 4 Kids. Perhaps inevitably, it became the channel most-watched by Australian kids, and produced a few smash-hits such as ''DanceAcademy''.

Two of the network's defunct TV channels are ABC Kids and Fly TV: both children's channels, which aired from 2001 to 2003. They have now effectively been replaced by the ABC 4 Kids block and [=ABC3=], respectively.
