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.

Saturday’s +65% share ensured that Seven had an easy win in week 39. It was the network’s highest weekly share since the Olympics and saw the other networks see their shares drop week-on-week to their lowest since the Olympics.

Seven won in the AFL states but Nine still managed to win Sydney and Brisbane.

The multichannel’s had their lowest shares of the year with 7Two and 10 Bold at the top of the list. 10 Peach saw its share up, bucking the trend.

The top 10 shows were all sport and news while no entertainment show managed one million viewers this week. The best included The Block Sunday with 962,000 for Nine, Have You Been Paying Attention with 740,000 for 10 and SAS Australia Monday on Seven with 620,000.

The AFL Grand Final won Seven the week.

The finale of The Newsreader did very well in VPM ratings.
