The obvious solution would be for Ch9 to own the lot ( heaven forbid ). What they don`t get on FTA they pick up on Stan. But would they pay $400-$500m per year.I can’t help but feel like something has to give. Fox/Kayo is growing rapidly and 9 keep sliding into irrelevance. Surely they have to be thinking they’ve either got to totally shake up how they cover the game or consider not bothering with the rights.
Monstrous increase over last year really being driven by Kayo. I’m really interested to know what the NRL is planning moving forward. The way viewers watch NRL is changing drastically and if anything has only accelerated this year.
But having an average of 600k + watching every game would allow them to promote their other programmes to an awful lot of eyeballs.
