7plus streaming channel promo. Claims “only 7Plus has non-stop streaming channels, all for free”.
By what years
I’m not sure if it is due to the price or the agreement with South Pacific or what but showing a soap from NZ , Shortland St months behind is ridiculous in this day and age .
Sbs never ran the show 6 months behind.
But it’s only behind because it was off the air in Australia for 6 months.
I thought they weren’t allowed to upload all those episodes .

The Seven Network’s FAST channels are growing at lightning pace, with the minutes streamed surging 125% over the past year and the channels now drawing a unique monthly audience of over 300,000 viewers.
More than 630 million minutes of Seven’s FAST (free ad-supported streaming TV) programming were watched on 7plus in the 12 months to 31 August this year, up from 280 million minutes in the previous corresponding period and representing nearly 10% of all live content viewed on 7plus.
The average number of unique monthly users watching the suite of over 50 FAST channels on 7plus jumped 56% year-on-year and the number of minutes consumed per viewer grew by 41% year-on-year.
Over 30 of Seven’s FAST channels are exclusive to 7plus and feature a curated schedule of premium, Australian programs that local audiences love, including Home and Away, Better Homes & Gardens and Border Security.
Popular FAST channels on 7plus include Blue Lights, Blue Heelers, Crazy In Love, Cooking and Culture, and ONE Fight Replays.
Seven West Media Chief Digital Officer, Gereurd Roberts, said: “Seven is Australia’s leader in FAST channels. They are an integral pillar of our content strategy on 7plus, alongside our leading video-on-demand and live streaming content.
“Great local content resonates the most with Australians, and over 70% of our viewed FAST content is premium Australian programming, with more than 90% of this exclusive to 7plus. Our focus on home-grown storytelling and Australian voices has enabled us to forge a deep connection with our audience, who value authenticity and relevance.”
Seven Network Digital Sales Director, Rachel Page, said: “As FAST audiences on 7plus continue to grow at pace, so too do the commercial opportunities for our partners and agencies.
“Like with 7plus live and on-demand viewing, OzTAM’s Video Player Measurement (VPM) continues to provide advertisers with robust reach and engagement metrics unique to BVOD. Our FAST channels also open up new opportunities for smaller advertisers, offering cost-effective, optimised campaign planning and buying options that are not restricted by smaller budgets,” she said.
“Using 7REDiQ, brands will be insight-driven when looking to connect their message with the highly
engaged FAST audiences. Leveraging consumer data from categories like automotive, FMCG and over 40 VISA merchant categories, FAST channels deliver brands more than just age, gender and life stage when making considerations to activate campaigns that drive maximum
impact on the largest screen in the home.”
Exclusive Australian premiere only on 7plus
The Seven Network today announced the limited true crime drama series, A Friend of the Family, will premiere exclusively on 7plus next month.
Based on the harrowing true story of the Broberg family, the chilling nine-part drama drops on Wednesday, 25 October, only on 7plus.
The Broberg family’s jaw dropping, stranger-than-fiction story has stunned true crime fans for decades. Over several years, the Brobergs’ eldest daughter Jan was kidnapped multiple times by a charismatic, obsessed family “friend”. Devoted to their faith, family, and community, the Brobergs were utterly unprepared for the sophisticated tactics their manipulative neighbour used to exploit their vulnerabilities, drive them apart, and turn their daughter against them.
A Friend of the Family explores how one family’s lives were forever altered and their resilience tested when faced with the unimaginable.
Seven’s Director of Content Scheduling, Brook Hall, said: “The acquisition of a premium drama series such as A Friend of the Family, exclusively for 7plus, is testament to the network’s ongoing commitment to bring our audiences more of the best in entertainment, news and sport, for free and on demand.”
Featuring a stellar ensemble cast, A Friend of the Family stars Oscar® Award-winner Anna Paquin (Flack, The Irishman, True Blood) and Emmy® Award-nominees Jake Lacy (The White Lotus, Being the Ricardos), Colin Hanks (The Offer, Impeachment: American Crime Story) and Mckenna Grace (Ghostbusters: Afterlife, The Handmaid’s Tale).
Lio Tipton (The Edge of Sleep, Why Women Kill), Hendrix Yancey (George & Tammy, Unbelievable), Austin Stowell (The Hating Game, Three Women), Patrick Fischler (American Crime Story: Impeachment, The Right Stuff), Bree Elrod (Red Rocket) and Philip Ettinger (First Reformed, Angelyne) also star.
Nick Antosca (The Act, Channel Zero) serves as showrunner, writer and executive producer of the series. Alex Hedlund and Eliza Hittman are executive producers with Hittman also serving as director for multiple episodes. Jan and Mary Broberg also serve as producers.
A Friend of the Family is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group.
