Nine Network - Programs and Schedules

Why do Perth get the free-to-air premiere of “Spectre” (2015) but not other markets?

Do they get it soon?

Interesting as well that Edge of Tomorrow is scheduled for Thursday in Sydney and Brisbane, but nothing for Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth… And there’s no reason why EoT couldn’t be shown in those cities, or Spectre aired in all 5 cities on that day. Very messy.

Is it possible that the AFL states have already seen those movies on Thursday or Friday nights that Sydney & Brisbane had NRL coverage on?

Last seen in July in AFl areas

Yes, but not Spectre?

Nine would want a big night to launch it on too.

Must be airing in markets outside Perth in the next week or so?




The gripping story of the notorious Menendez brothers murder case that left the world fascinated and divided premieres on Channel Nine Monday, October 2 after The Block.

Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders is the dramatic retelling of the sensational trial of Lyle and Erik Menendez for the brutal murder of their parents. This eight-part series fast-tracked from the United States will continue Mondays after The Block on Nine.

This enthralling series produced by Dick Wolf, creator of the powerhouse Law & Order franchise, delves into the double murder and the media circus that surrounded the trial of the Menendez brothers. The trial became an American obsession by being shown live on television.

The Menendez Murders stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie, The Sopranos) as tenacious defence attorney, Leslie Abramson; Miles Gaston Villanueva as Lyle Menendez; Gus Halper as his brother Erik; Lolita Davidovich as their mother Kitty; and Carlos Gomez as their father Jose. The thrilling series features an outstanding support cast including Heather Graham (The Hangover), Josh Charles (The Good Wife), Julianne Nicholson (Eyewitness), Anthony Edwards (ER) and Elizabeth Reaser (The Good Wife).

The Menendez Murders unveils the distressing, shocking and often spine-tingling truths that surfaced when the cameras stopped rolling in the court room. Being born into a world of privilege, the mystery behind the case doesn’t lie within how the brothers did it, but why they committed such a shocking crime.

They’ll possibly repeat it on Gem in a couple of months. As a movie man you would be aware that they are running a Bond film each Sunday night. This Sunday it’s the steaming pile that is Never Say Never Again 1983).

But Nine never air the more modern films on 9Gem (Goldeneye 1995 > beyond), always main channel or 9Go!

Nor would they premiere “Spectre” (2015) on 9Gem, especially in Sydney & Melbourne :roll_eyes:

Seven did the same, Goldeneye onwards was main channel

Seven aired Goldeneye onwards on their main channel, but for a long time that was because they only had the rights to the Brosnan films. Ten had the rest.

Never said they would.

A side note: Seven were still airing “Quantum of Solace” (2008) last year, must’ve had to air it once more to end their MGM deal, thought how odd considering Nine had MGM for a year or two.

Correct, but come the late 2000s, Seven got the rest of MGM.

First marathon I can recall on Seven was in 2010 (though they probably did one in 2009 or maybe 2008)?

Now Nine have the sole rights.

Riverfire - Nine should remove the HD watermark!


2017 and the telecast of Riverfire (an event which if anything, sounds like a natural fit for HD) on Nine Brisbane is still only in SD?

I really don’t know what to say about that…


Very poor - we know they can undertake a HD broadcast as the telethon was (and numerous porting events) HD, plus with HD news, no excuses now.
