News outlets who broadcast the live feed of the gunman who attacked two mosques in Christchurch have reportedly not been penalised by the media watchdog.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority has not publicly released the results of its investigation of Nine Entertainment Co, Seven West Media, Network Ten, News Corp's Sky News, ABC and SBS who aired the footage on their daytime news broadcasts.

It has however handed the confidential report to the broadcasters, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age report.

The Australian gunman, Brenton Tarrant, livestreamed his attack on the mosques, in which he killed 51 people and wounded dozens more, raising severe criticism of the news outlets for broadcasting the vision.

"Having reviewed the range of treatments of the alleged perpetrator and survivor footage that was broadcast, the ACMA considers that there was some material that raises questions about whether there was compliance with the broadcasting codes of practice.

"This is especially so where video footage of shooting at people was shown," the newspapers cite the report as saying.

However, the ACMA decided punishing the broadcasters would not serve a purpose.

"Instead the ACMA considers that this investigation would more usefully prompt a productive conversation with industry about whether its codes are adequately framed to deal with this type of material in the future."
