I bet there was no mention of either Nine or NBN… more evidence of an identity crisis.

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).

:man_facepalming: The two different logo gradients really bugs me.

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.
