Friday 23 July 2021

That is not the information that I was referring to.

I can post some of that information though.

Tokyo 2020 Opening Ceremony takes the crown

#1 TV show of 2021, record 7plus streaming audience

After more than a year of delays and uncertainty, Australians flocked in their millions to watch the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Opening Ceremony last night on Seven and 7plus.

The Seven Network’s live, free and exclusive coverage attracted 2.7 million viewers nationally on broadcast, taking the crown as the most-watched TV program of 2021.

The start of the world’s biggest sporting event of the decade hooked 2.12 million capital city viewers, also making it the #1 program of 2021 in the metropolitan markets.

The capital city audience was up a strong 31% on the number of viewers for the Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony in 2016, while the national audience was up 20%.

Earlier in the evening, the Countdown to the Opening Ceremony drew 2.24 million viewers nationally and 1.64 million in the capital cities.

Viewers stayed around until the very early hours of this morning: the Opening Ceremony Post Wrap had 1.34 million viewers nationally and 1.11 million in the capital cities.

On 7plus,Seven’s exclusive coverage of the Opening Ceremony and other events yesterday smashed all records with an extraordinary 66 million total minutes streamed (excluding co-viewing).

The total included 44.6 million minutes of live streaming – in comparison, the highest one- day live streaming number for the Rio Olympics in 2016 was 38 million – and 21.3 million minutes of video-on-demand. The numbers will grow when co-viewing data is released later today.

Yesterday, 7plus dominated with a 72.3% share of commercial free-to-air live streaming and a 55.8% share of total minutes (live plus VOD minutes).

Very high streaming numbers for the TOkyo Games. Shows that streaming is on the rise. Tokyo Olympics is a favorable time zone for Australia.

How would it be offensive to the Japanese? The country was strong armed into still holding the event and there’s not much that can be done under the circumstances with no audience (good decision) and trying to hold the opening ceremony event in a safe as way possible. It wasn’t great, but しょうがない (Japanese for “it cannot be helped”.

Good Neighbours ratings again. This week has had the highest, 2nd, 4th and 5th highest this year.

Seven changing the coding for the Opening Ceremony - originally there was just one coding for the vent + a Post Ceremony program.

Now - OPENING CEREMONY plus OPENING CEREMONY-LATE. The original number for the whole ceremony was 2,117,000 with 1,111,000 for the post ceremony. The new coding gets the ceremony up to 2,585,000

Sneaky Seven! They’d do anything to make any show of theirs look bigger than what it originally was. I understand having a “Countdown” and “post wrap” for most sporting events coded separately, but an actual event should just have one coding.

916,000 is good for the “post wrap”, which aired at 1am on the East.
