Studios from Around the World

With the anticipated move of 9 Sydney to North Sydney, the question on whether they will keep the same News Studio going forward has lead to some discussions and thoughts on what they could or should do in terms of studios.

Around the world there are a plethora of outstanding sets that dwarf many of the sets in Australia. We can always dream that Australian networks would invest in a sophisticated studio. Share studios from around the world here.


Sets that could influence Nine News’ new studios.
For TODAY either something like Spectrum NY1 Studio A or Un Nuevo Dia from Telemundo.

For WWOS something similar to the NBC Sports regional stations where it has multiple presentation areas.

For Nine News National Bulletins something like CTV News Channel in Canada which could look onto the new newsroom or a studio similar to the NBC O&O’s currently have but on a smaller scale.

Too American. Just because they’re big with lots of elements it doesn’t mean it’s tasteful.


This would look nice with a few more tweaks


For a morning show they’re perfect, European sets are too cold and baron for that format.

That’s just a bunch of screens with an ugly desk

Which is exactly how I’d describe the tacky North American sets above, with some 90s (80s?) wood and stone thrown in for good measure.


NEP New Zealand (formerly NZ Live) operates from a purpose built studio and broadcast facility at 60 Stanley Street in Auckland’s central business district (CBD). It’s adjacent from the world-class ASB Tennis Arena, and located off the city’s Northwestern Motorway - a short 6 minute drive from the CBD, depending on traffic.

There are two medium-sized studios and two small studios. Studios 3 and 2 are the two small studios which have green screen capability.

Studio 4 (below) comprises 215m² / 2,314 sq ft of space and up to 5 cameras. With a technical grid, soundproofing, concrete floor and air conditioning, the versatility of Studio 4 is perfect for any genre of medium-sized television production and has the capacity for a studio audience.

Studio 1 (below) comprises 100m² / 1,076 sq ft of space and up to 4 cameras, and is perfect for sports shows, magazine shows, current affairs and corporate productions. In real life, Studio 1 at NEP is permanently dedicated to Trackside (through TAB NZ) and its racing shows are based here.
