I noticed that the 9Life is still temporarily unavailable in regional areas in WA. They had this issue for over 6 months and really wanting the new channel. Unfortunately, WDT is under Prime + WIN Corporation Joint Venture. Southern Cross has the 9Life channel on Channel 54 in Southern NSW, VIC and QLD.


Same in Tasmania, still temporarily unavailable.

and WIN in South Australia (Riverland and Mount Gambier)
and WIN in Griffith/MIA

Edit: Mildura as well I think

I think we have possibly established it simply wasn’t in the new Program Supply Agreement, but since we are not privy to those details…

Still annoying though

Also you can add in there would be in Central Australia, Spencer Gulf and Darwin. NO 9Life yet. People who cannot have access to 9Now would have to download the 9Now app to stream the coverage.

You’re not wrong; the difference is all the other areas we have mentioned have previously had LIFE. What’s worse, never broadcasting a channel into a certain region, or broadcasting it for a few months then have it taken off the air in these select areas?

So 9LIFE is now available in Darwin (since when?) - meaning all NINE owned and operated stations, including NBN, carry the whole suite of 9 channels

Now we just need 9LIFE to return to… oh who am I kidding, it’s clear WIN nor NEC are interested !


Tuesday 23 May at 7.30pm

Less than 24 hours after the United States has seen the first rose ceremony, the new season of The Bachelorette will launch at 7.30pm next Tuesday, May 23, on 9Life.

Rachel Lindsay, a fan favourite on the hit US romance-reality series The Bachelor, is the next woman to hand out the roses and attempt to find her own happily-ever-after.

Bachelor Nation, was unanimous in its support for the bright and beautiful attorney from Dallas, Texas, from the very beginning after Rachel landed the first impression rose in the latest series of The Bachelor.

Rachel, 31, is driven, passionate and excited about her law career, and never has any problems winning in the courtroom. But finding that elusive great love is a case that unfortunately remains open.

Rachel went through the trials and tribulations of falling in love with Nick on The Bachelor, and now it will be her turn to investigate a group of wonderful men and find her soul mate.

Rachel’s future husband will need to be smart, funny, have a decent jump shot, and be willing to compete for her attention with the two other males she holds dear in her heart: her handsome nephew, Allister, and her adorable dog, Copper.

“Rachel Lindsay encompasses something special. She is drop dead gorgeous with a sense of humour, class, and self-confidence,” said Mike Fleiss, Executive Producer and Creator. “We were in love with Rachel the moment she stepped out of the limo in Nick’s season of The Bachelor and we believe the world will fall under her spell on this season of the Bachelorette.”


From Monday 19 June at 10.30pm



It’s the smash-hit reality series that is currently taking the UK by storm – and now it’s time for Australia to indulge in this late-night guilty pleasure with the Series 3 premiere of Love Island, this Monday, June 19, at 10.30pm on 9Life.

The new series is already a UK ratings sensation and a constant hot topic of conversation. Now 9Life viewers will have the chance to join in the conversation as the series is fast-tracked to Australian screens every Monday to Friday (with all the uncut and uncensored episodes that are “too hot for TV” available to stream on 9Now).

Hosted by Caroline Flack, this ultimate game of love sees a fresh batch of sexy singletons beginning their journey to a luxury villa in paradise that will play host to their love and lust. To remain in the game, the islanders must couple up, winning the hearts of each other and the UK public who ultimately decide who stays on Love Island.

Meanwhile the islanders must brace themselves for a bombshell whenever Caroline drops in. She will be appearing in the villa throughout the series to deliver shock announcements and surprise twists that are guaranteed to test their relationships. Expect passion, romance and drama from the outset, with temperatures set to rise and pulses racing faster than ever. It’s confronting, it’s graphic, and it’s real.

Caroline says the show is ultimately about finding true love.

“On Love Island you know you are going to meet like-minded people who are looking for the same things. You know you are guaranteed to find someone else who is also looking for a relationship. It’s the perfect place to find someone to have a bit of fun with.”

She added that the success of the series is due to people’s insatiable appetite for gossip, and it is sure to become your late-night guilty pleasure.

New 9Life Ident:

15 Second Ident:


Joanna and Chip Gaines have announced their popular TV show Fixer Upper will end at the fifth season, which starts in the US at the end of November, to focus on their family plus their real estate and interior design business. Fixer Upper airs in Australia on 9Life and Lifestyle on Foxtel.

Christmas ID, as per last year:


Scott Jeffress, a sometime producer on The Bachelor, has inferred that his two sons share a girlfriend.

Could this be giving Jeffress ideas, the Bachelor or Bachelorette gives the final roses to two hopefuls?

lol you misread that


Indeed. He’s talking about them “each” having a girlfriend not sharing one.

…And now Coming Soon to TV (Channel 54) in Tasmania. Channel placeholder is live.
I know it has been available on 9now internet…but now at least will keep the wife busy while I retire to the mancave.
