Nine (NBN)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f16abc86540>

I suppose as long as they perform

  • High Ratings
  • Good ad sales
    Then Nine won’t interfere with the Formula NBN has.

NBN NNSW and 7 Tasmania are still the highest rated stations (Highest share) in the nation I think, Even more so than 7 Perth

We don’t know how NBN is rating in comparison to the other stations. I haven’t been able to access the Regional TAM reports all this year. They had in the past been publicly available, the same as OzTAM. I wonder why Regional TAM has effectively put all their reports behind their paywall. Surely, you would think, Nine and Seven would want to promote the success of the regional stations they own - NBN and Seven Qld?


here you go my friend

That’s not what I meant.

GWN might give them a run for their money :wink:


And 7QLD too.

I see that Nine use the callsign GCQ (or very similar) for its Gold Coast feed, which is basically an opt out of QTQ. I guess that’s not strictly even a station, is it?


To my knowledge that’s only used internally, but there’s an argument there - in much the same way that in a regional market, one station may have multiple advertising feeds


That’s a great find for a fellow Novocastrian like me! Thanks for sharing.

I wonder how many people on the Gold Coast actually watch Nine-NBN as opposed to the local Nine Gold Coast?


Not many. I read somewhere that Prime/9NBN/WIN on average command about 15% of the audience that the Brisbane stations get on the GC.


I would imagine that their Gold Coast stations wouldn’t be making much money. I also suspect that most people in the far north of the Tweed Coast from Tweed Heads down to Kingscliff are probably watching the Gold Coast metro stations rather than what comes out of Lismore.


I can’t imagine the regional stations on the NSW Central Coast (regional Australia’s most poorly served major market when it comes to local media IMO) being that big of a money spinner either. NRN under a number of ownership eras never bothering to turn on their relays in Gosford and Bouddi probably says something about how widely the relays of Sydney TV are watched in that region.

Except of course during Daylight Saving Time, when the Lismore stations might be more widely watched due to being an hour ahead of the Gold Coast metro ones North of the border!


But the Gold Coast transmitters are all on Queensland time.


Correct. Many on the border have two UHF antennas - one facing Mt Nardi near Lismore and the other, Mt Tamborine (the mian Gold Coast Transmitter). For 6 months of the year they would be enjoying programmes in 2 times zones from essentially, 3 different TV markets!


They aren’t always playing the same programs, eg at 4:40pm Monday QLD time, there is News on NBN and Millionare on 9 Gold Coast. So it could be different viewing tastes at that particular moment.
