GET ON THE COUCH BRISBANE GOGGLEBOX AUSTRALIA IS CASTING

MEDIA RELEASE: Wednesday March 13, 2019

GET ON THE COUCH BRISBANE

GOGGLEBOX AUSTRALIA IS CASTING

Foxtel and The Courier Mail today announced that casting is open for two new households to join the hit local-production Gogglebox Australia – and for the first time those households will be from Brisbane.

Currently streaming its ninth season on Foxtel and broadcast Wednesdays at 7.30pm on the Lifestyle Channel, Gogglebox Australia features a diverse range of personalities from differing backgrounds and ages whose television commentary has made them into “TV experts”.

The current Gogglebox cast is a 60/40 split of Melbournites and Sydneysiders, so the addition of households from the Sunshine State will be an exciting change for the 10th season.

Produced by Endemol Shine Australia, executive producer, David McDonald said, “We’re very excited to find Queensland personalities to put in the mix. When Gogglebox first started we were restricted in what we could accommodate with the fast turnaround of the show. Now in our fifth year of production, it’s time to expand, so it was decided (very wisely) to go north and capture the unique voice of the Queensland territory.”

The Brisbane households will join brother and sister Tim and Leanne; bubbly Greek best friends Anastasia and Faye; happily married couple Lee and Keith; the adorable and sports-crazy Jackson Family; the fun-loving and cricket-mad Delpechitra Family; best mates Adam and Symon; dealers in Indigenous Art Mick and Di; the close-knit Dalton Family; married couple Matty and Sarah Marie and their friend Jad; and the three generations of women in the Silbery Family.

Gogglebox Australia is an Endemol Shine Australia production for Foxtel and Network 10.

Gogglebox Australia Season 9 is available to stream weekly following its broadcast on Foxtel’s Lifestyle channel. Seasons 1 – 8 are also available for those wanting to catch up on past episodes.

Foxtel in 4K Ultra HD heats up winter sport codes · NRL, AFL, Super Rugby and Women’s Football lead the winter sport 4K Ultra HD charge · Follows Foxtel’s incredible 4K Ultra HD summer of Cricket

Media Release: Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Foxtel in 4K Ultra HD heats up winter sport codes

· NRL, AFL, Super Rugby and Women’s Football lead the winter sport 4K Ultra HD charge
· Follows Foxtel’s incredible 4K Ultra HD summer of Cricket

Foxtel will continue to change the game in 2019 as it makes this season’s winter sport codes hotter than ever with a host of amazing sport set to arrive in 4K Ultra HD. Select match-ups across NRL, AFL, Super Rugby and Women’s Football will light up Australian living rooms in 4K Ultra HD as Foxtel secures its place as the home of sport in 4K Ultra HD.

The upcoming 4K Ultra HD fixtures will be available on Foxtel’s dedicated 4K Ultra HD channel (channel 444) and will air live, with no ad breaks during play.

Foxtel’s massive 4K Ultra HD sport expansion comes on the heels of its incredibly successful first broadcast of Supercars at Bathurst and a complete summer of cricket, which thrilled Australians with the country’s first ever 4K Ultra HD cricket broadcasts. Fans were treated to a season full of the amazing detail that only 4K Ultra HD can bring to sports and, this winter, Foxtel is continuing to deliver like never before.

Super Rugby looked fabulous in 4K Ultra HD last weekend. The stars of Foxtel’s upcoming 4K Ultra HD winter of sport are the highly anticipated 2019 NRL and AFL seasons. Foxtel will showcase more than 40 NRL games and more than 40 AFL matches in 4K Ultra HD. The NRL’s 4K Ultra HD revolution kicks off on March 15 as the Knights go head-to-head against the Sharks; and then on March 22 with the Raiders taking on the Storm.

AFL enters the 4K Ultra HD action on March 23 with Melbourne taking on Port Adelaide at the MCG; and with St. Kilda and the Gold Coast Suns battling it out in 4K Ultra HD at Marvel Stadium on March 24.

This season will mark the first time ever that these two massive sport codes will air in 4K Ultra HD in Australia. Foxtel is committed to bringing fans closer to the game than ever before, and the best way to do that is through creating the ultimate stadium experience at home with 4K Ultra HD.

The 2019 4K Ultra HD action got an early start on February 23 with Super Rugby when the Brumbies took on the Chiefs at GIO Stadium. The next Super Rugby match-up lands on March 2 with the Reds and the Crusaders at Suncorp, followed on March 9 when the Waratahs and the Reds battle it out at the SCG.

The Women’s Football: Cup of Nations will make its 4K Ultra HD debut on February 28 as Argentina takes to the field against Korea, and when our Matildas square off against New Zealand.

Additional 4K Ultra HD sport arrivals include select Wallabies games and the Hyundai A-League Grand Final.

Patrick Delany, Foxtel CEO, said, “Foxtel’s summer of cricket brought a revolutionary way to experience sport to Australian screens like never before and our subscribers loved it. But, the Foxtel in 4K Ultra HD revolution is just getting started.

“This year we’re taking another huge step forward and lighting up Australia’s favourite winter codes in 4K Ultra HD, putting fans in the centre of the action to witness incredible tries, nail-biting goals, and spectacular marks in 4K Ultra HD, and the only place you’ll be able to experience it is on Foxtel.”

Foxtel’s 4K Ultra HD channel comes as extra value for customers with a Foxtel Platinum HD or Foxtel Sports HD subscription and an iQ4*.

This is an unprecedented way to enjoy live sport, documentaries, movies and more, delivered through the iQ4, Foxtel’s most advanced streaming set top box via Australia’s only guaranteed 4K Ultra HD satellite signal.

Complete coverage of non-4K Ultra HD 2019 winter codes is also available in HD on the FOX SPORTS, FOX LEAGUE and FOX FOOTY channels.
