According to yourtv.com.au it is on channel 9 in melbourne

Yep no NSW Cup or Toyota Cup though on either 9 or Gem with 9 preferring to repeat the 1955 movie Blood Alley and a repeat of the Farmer Wants A Wife and Gem preferring repeats of F Troop, The Garden Gurus, Getaway and the 1976 film That's Entertainment, Part 2.

Toyota Cup GF will be on Fox Sports though so the other states can still watch it

Actually a shame if it isn't on GEM, as it wont be in HD.

Thats one of the good points about Melbourne's TV coverage of League this year.

So called Conroys office. They put me through to ACMA (1300 850 115), then I pressed 2, then 1, left my name number and a brief message and am waiting for a call back.

I suggest others do the same.

and you should actually ring 9 Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth first to be sure as online guides may not be correct

don't ring anyone to complain until you are certain they are breaking the rules otherwise they'll think you're an idiot

Pretty happy with the WA covg, would have been nice to get the pre game all day stuff on GEM but compared to what we have put up with in recent years not complaining.

Nope, the only simulcast is FOX Sports doing the NYC GF.

They'll also run classic Grand Finals all morning until Toyota Cup kickoff.

No Post Match coverage in Victoria when their team is competing. I'm sure I remember they did this in '09, they went straight to the news after full time and the first story was about the Storm winning. They crossed live to a Pub in Melbourne and you could barely hear the reporter over everyone in the background screaming at the camera to go back to the game!!

Pathetic but no surprises. Even with Kerry Packer in charge Channel 9 in Melbourne treated and continue to treat league unfairly. And there really is only one logical explanation.
