Nine (NBN)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f9a4f6da100>

I think that NBN has become less used due to the National Broadband Network (NBN), hence why they only promote their nightly news as NBN.

Allowing NBN co to go under NBN always had the potential for a negative view. This is probably part of the reason for NBN mainly having Nine branding instead of NBN. The other factor is probably cost. I have noticed Prime7 at times just use default 7 branding on the promotions for programs eg Home and Away etc

NBN (National Broadband Network) Co was founded back in April 2009, so while it may have played somewhat of a role in the eventual decision to rebrand the channel, I doubt that it was the primary reason behind the decision. NBN’s independent branding only began to be phased out on the same day that 9HD and 9Life were launched in Northern NSW (1st March 2016).

More 9NBN branding, logo and all

Good on NBN!

Shame they don’t have local coverage of Knights games like the used to.

It’s been a while since they’ve done that.

They stopped suddenly midway through the 2003 season. Unusual, you’d think any rights they had would have lasted until the end of the season.

STAR HOTEL RIOT | 40 years ago today, an estimated 4000 people fought with police on the streets of Newcastle over the closure of the Star Hotel. Here’s the original NBN News report from 1979 in its entirety.

Location Lifestyle Living may as well not exist. It’s not on any guide I can see and even the PRG for the previous show had Cybershack as coming up.

Sifon - Yep, local TV would be so much more if people showed the passion (ie fix TV guides and make their shows available online (like Anzac day and the Netball finals).

Even Prime7, they pay for Google ads promoting Prime7 Newcastle and it links to the Central Coast page, and by the time you get to the Newcastle page there was no local news

I love NBN News but other NBN projects lack attention to detail.

NBN News lacks “attention to detail” as well particularly around inconsistent presentation which has been discussed in the NBN News thread.

It was Australia’s worst road disaster at the time.

Here’s our original story from 1989.

Though it was a network report (filed by TCN-9s Brad Schmitt) given NBN didn’t broadcast into the North Coast at that time).

Saw a 30 second ad today for 9|NBN - a stupid name - thanking viewers for “making Nine NBN the number one network across northern NSW and the Gold Coast”

I mentioned on here they should continue with mixed branding. I wonder if they listened.

As I have said, NBN still has a strong local connection in Newcastle

I’d personally prefer to see the Northern NSW station use just one of NBN or Nine (don’t really care which of the two they pick - just as long as the usage of it is consistent) for both the news and general station branding.
