Please note: The report includes catch up minutes only and is not restricted to the five metropolitan cities. Live streaming channel viewing is not included. When broadcasters upgrade their video players, player measurement SDKs may take time to reach consumer devices (consumers need to update their apps) and may temporarily result in an under-reporting of a broadcaster video player figures. Refer to the VPM Guidelines at the [OzTAM website] (www.oztam.com.au)
VPM Rating: total minutes played divided by content length (rounded to the nearest '000); Length (mins): duration in minutes of the program content; Minutes: total number of minutes played across measured devices (rounded to the nearest '000); BVOD Reach: total number of times the video content began to play. Posted date: the day the video content was first made available to play. Top Programs are for episodes with a minimum length of 15 minutes.

Seven got 2023 off to a good start with their highest weekly share in four months, primarily off the back of good news and cricket ratings. Second-placed Nine was steady with its mix of tennis on main and multis.

ABC dropped four points from the previous week to its lowest share in four months. 10 had some success with its line up of classic movies with its highest share in three months while SBS lifted to double figures.

7Two was the number one multi with one of its best shares, the highest since July.

Call the Midwife was the only entertainment show in the top 20. Just missing out were Better Homes and Gardens Summer plus afternoon game shows.

The top VPM list was unusual by featuring only programming from ABC and 10.
