the Storm will get no press in Victoriania in AFL GF week
Victorians too insular
True but it didn't stop us from getting decent ratings in the past for storm GF's. The AFL will rate more in Sydney but i'm still expecting some decent ratings for the storm.
how many of tose were on the same w/e as the AFL GF?
you would have got press when on different weekends and that would help
If there is no Melbourne team in the AFL the Storm might get a bit more column space.
Melbourne media would not allow that in AFL GF week
I still doubt we got much. You may be right but i think having the storm in the final is still a huge boost for our ratings.
storm being in the GF will add about 500000 viewers...
Just wish the swanes got booted
I was thinking a boost from two paragraphs to four
Maybe they'll even get a colour picture.
i'd hardly call $100 million modest
Anyone know why Channel 9 seems to turn up the volume for a second for each hit up? It sounds really annoying, it isn't the commentators not talking, they seem to think there will be more noise as a tackle is made.
I'm thinking that instead of just going for the biggest money, why don't the NRL get a decent FTA coverage deal in NZ for slightly less?
Why? Because Sky Sport has everything else pretty much sewn-up.. if the NRL can be seen at a decent hour on FTA TV by families that don't have Sky, it might just encourage growth of the game here over other sport.
Especially if it's coupled with some NRL teams once more taking the odd 'home' game over here.
Tbh flippikat they would be better going for the extra money then putting that $5mill towards school program's, on the road Nrl games in Wellington, the local Wellington comp, supporting the improvement of the NZRL infrastructure and helping the NZRL develop a serious bid for Wellington in 2018. $5mill a year could buy you an awful lot of development if spent wisely!
Conversely a weekly prime time FTA slot could build ratings to the point that the next television contract is much more valuable while at the same time building the public mindshare necessary to support a second team.
I don't get it. It's on FTA but you have to be on Sky to watch the replay?
Could being the operative word. Don't disagree fta would boost viewers and interest but cold hard cash can do alot more in half the time imo.

[SIZE=-1]Finals update: Friday night saw the AFL on Seven win with the Swans beating Collingwood in Sydney. The free-to-air game on Seven's main and digital channels had 1.721 million viewers in metro and regional markets, according to ratings data from Oztam. Add in the audience on pay TV of 480,000 and the audience was 2.2 million.
The NRL final between Melbourne and Manly in Melbourne averaged a solid 1.570 million on Nine's main and digital channels in metro and regional markets.
Saturday night's second NRL final between Canterbury and Souths saw 1.786 million people watch on Nine (main channels and Gem digital). That was well ahead of the 1.569 million who watched the AFL final when Hawthorn beat Adelaide in the closest of all the finals this year so far. The 397,000 people who watched on Foxtel boosted the total audience to 1.966 million people.
The boost from the pay TV audiences again underlines what the Australian Rugby League Commission missed in the recent contract talks with Nine and Foxtel/Fox Sports (which wanted co-broadcasting).
Is he trying to say that the Foxtel viewers wouldn't have watched the AFL if it wasn't on Foxtel? I would have thought they would just watch it on free-to-air
i think they watch it on foxtel because it is in HD. i assume they're the AFL fans in VIC, SA and WA who own fox and can choose.
Dyer is speaking out his arse again
it was never reported 9 or any FTA would agree to that
Separate names with a comma.
