9NOW EXCEEDS ONE MILLION SIGN-UPS AND ADDS MORE CHANNELS TO LIVE STREAM

More than one million Australians have signed up to 9Now, Nine’s digital video streaming service, since it launched in February 2016.

Commenting on the success of 9Now, Alex Parsons, Nine’s Chief Digital and Marketing Officer, said: “The rate at which Australians are turning to catch-up and live streaming platforms continues to grow at a staggering rate.

“For some formats we are seeing long-form growth close to 30 per cent year-on-year, with a program such as Married at First Sight generating more than one million long-form video streams only weeks after the official broadcast of the final episode.”

The milestone coincides with 9Go!, 9Gem and 9Life being added to 9Now’s live TV streaming service, allowing Nine’s audience to access all four Nine Network channels live and free, right across Australia.

“The addition of these three channels brings viewers closer to our programs than ever before, allowing consumers to access our content anytime, anywhere, on all devices,” Mr Parsons said.

Nine’s Chief Sales Officer, Michael Stephenson, added: “9Now allows consumers to take control of the way they watch television.

“We now have more than one million connected consumers through our single sign-in functionality and are well positioned to be able to serve addressable advertising live into the stream within 9Now. This is programmatic television.”

9Now is currently available on web, iOS, Android, Telstra TV and HBBTV, with app for the following devices to follow, including Apple TV, Chromecast, Sony TV, Samsung TV, LG TV, PlayStation, Xbox and Fetch TV.

To live stream Channel 9, 9Gem, 9Go! and 9Life, or to catch up on all your favourite shows, visit 9now.com.au or download the 9Now app through the Apple App Store or on Google Play.

Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Big Three-Oh!
Six-part stand up series from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival premiering on The Comedy Channel Fridays from June 3 at 9pm

Celebrating 30 fabulous years of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Foxtel filmed the 30th Birthday Bash in front of a live audience from Melbourne’s historic Regent Theatre on April 1 to create a hilarious six part stand up series exclusive to The Comedy Channel.

Hosted by Tommy Little, the Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Big Three-Oh! series features new performances, musical comedy, and favourite acts from the past 30 years including Gerry Connolly, Judith Lucy, Wil Anderson, Luke McGregor, Eddie Perfect, Nina Conti, Dave Hughes, Ronny Chieng, Sammy J & Randy, Wendy Harmer, Charlie Pickering, Hannah Gadsby, the Umbilical Brothers, Cal Wilson, Greg Fleet, Stephen K Amos, Tripod, a guest appearance from Briggs, and the long awaited reunion of Lano & Woodley!

Thirty years ago an idea was hatched to create a festival to showcase and celebrate Melbourne’s ground breaking comedy and cabaret venues and the performers who inhabited them. From its humble beginnings, the Melbourne Comedy Festival has become one of the biggest in the world playing host to thousands of local and international performers and entertaining millions of people.

A massive line-up of comedy superstars past, present and future delivered a once in a lifetime comedy event that you won’t miss out on thanks to The Comedy Channel. The Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Big Three-Oh! six part series kicks off Fridays from June 3 at 9pm only on The Comedy Channel.
