The move comes on the heels of other restrictive measures that have been introduced against Russia and its mass media amid the country's military operation in Ukraine.
Australia has suspended Russia Today's broadcasting, the channel announced on Telegram.
No further details have been provided so far.
Earlier this week, Finland's operator Elisa removed RT from its package "in support of Ukraine". Also, the consumers' rights watchdog in Estonia has ordered to stop re-broadcasting of some Russian TV channels.
