    not yet as what little info we have on kayo suggests it’s in the 100k-150kmrange for nrl games.this is still much lower than fox or fta. I really don’t understand why fox dont combine them and release total ratings, it would make it an easier sell to advertisers.

    We dont even really have this much. Last year we were told some games reached 70,000 for the NRL, and this year we are told they are up 18%. While at the same time we are given one or two individual game ratings, Just isnt enough data to even give a proper range,

    Was that Saturday night game the one featuring the Raiders and Souths? The Storm played on Friday night. Interesting if the Melbourne ratings spiked for a game not involving the Storm.

    Titans vs Panthers was FTA. Knights and Bulldogs was the early game.

    Probably in the minority but I'll watch 9now instead of kayo if fatty is on - he usually gives at least 1 good laugh

    (I'd watch on fta TV if the pre and post game analysis was shown down here - instead I need to watch 9now with location set as Sydney..)

    Just been watching some highlights from PNG digicell cup. Shame Fox arent showing the games on the League channel. They are pretty entertaining.

    Interesting article in the SMH about the decline of ratings.
    V has suggested we have lost casual fans.
    I suspect that is true because I cant watch neutral games now either but that has been the case for many years.
    The problem is the way coaches want to play is very boring and the failure of the salary cap.

    i'll watch 9 sometimes, i can't get Kayo working on my TV so I have to plug my laptop into it. Sometimes its easier just to watch fta.
