What 7Plus are doing with virtual channels is really fascinating. They’ve got a whole range of them now both from external outlets like Love Nature and based around their programs/rights (eg; there are currently channels for shows like Big Brother and Blue Heelers).

It’s something which was mentioned during the upfronts last year and what they do next year with them is worth keeping an eye on - especially considering the popularity of services like Pluto TV.

7plus is 720p for most things


1080 would be better but I must say that even with 720p most things on 7plus still look decent.

It does irritate me that some of the streams are 50fps when the actual content is 25fps. It looks like crap on devices that don’t auto fix it.


I discovered Joan of Arcadia on 7Plus, seems a bit like God Friended Me… for some reason I never saw Joan of Arcadia when it first came out.

Aired on Nine as summer fare.



I’m not sure whether this is a technical glitch or an upgrade but it appears 7plus now lets you watch live content from other states. It’s been letting me watch live news from Perth for a while now and I’m in Brisbane.

I also see a different looking progress bar when pausing a show on 7Plus on the Apple TV app.


@Squee Why is this topic pinned? I didn’t know 7plus was so important! :sweat_smile:

Since it is so important, I’m going to ask a question too!

I’ve noticed lately that 7plus have local ads for Tasmania included in the streams, ads that definitely would not be in Melbourne - e.g. Youngs Vegie Shed. So, if that’s possible, would it be possible later on sometime that instead of 7 Melbourne news being the bulletin broadcast on there we have 7 Tas news instead? Unlikely, I know but just curious about it if they’ve got the ads.

It’s because we recently decided to move each respective networks streaming apps into their own network category, rather than having them in the streaming category. Actually I accidently unpinned it as I forgot.


Unlikely as SCA produces the bulletin, not 7, and SCA is responsible for the playout.

But SCA may have sold the ad space on behalf of 7.

Is there any way to see Home and Away in Qld at the same time as NSW ? i’m on another forum and people are discussing it before I’ve seen it.

Can I change my location on the Apple TV ?

Can 7plus get home and away the early years or is it too hard

Why don’t you speak to someone at Seven about whether they can or can’t do that, rather than posting the request here? We can’t make it happen.


This looks new.
