Nine Network (commonly known as Channel Nine or simply Nine) is a
major Australian commercial free-to-air television network, that is a
Nine Entertainment Co.
Nine Entertainment Co. with headquarters in Willoughby, a
suburb located on the North Shore of Sydney, Australia. The Nine
Network is one of three main free-to-air commercial networks in
Nine Network is one of the two highest-rating television networks
in Australia, along with the
Seven Network and ahead of Network Ten,
ABC, and SBS. Nine had historically been the highest-rating
television network since television's inception in
Australia in 1956
for most years up to 2006, although
Network Ten had dominated in 1985
and for a number of years in the 1970s. The
Nine Network was overtaken
in the ratings in 2007 by its rival, the Seven Network, which had
previously dominated from the late 1980s to the mid 1990s. As a
result, Nine's slogan "Still the One" was discontinued. Since 2017,
the network's slogan has been "We Are the One".
After a few years in slight decline, with a period plagued by mass
sackings, programme cancellations, and budget cuts, the Nine Network
has experienced a period of stability.[when?] With the exception of
Friday nights, Nine has recently dominated weeknights, in terms of
ratings. Similar to the Network itself, in some respects, after
years of slight decline in ratings, Nine's news program, National Nine
News, has seen the return to being the most watched news program in
metro areas. In 2016, Nine had the largest share of audience
according to the ozTAM ratings system, a share of 20.7%. This was
higher than the other two major networks, and SBS and the ABC.

TCN-9 launched on 16 September 1956. John Godson introduced the
Bruce Gyngell presented the first programme, This Is
Television (so becoming the first person to appear on Australian
television). Later that year, GTV-9 in Melbourne commenced
transmissions to broadcast the 1956 Summer Olympics, later forming the
National Television Network alongside QTQ-9 in Brisbane in 1959 and
NWS-9 in Adelaide, the basis of the current Nine Network, in 1959.
Before its formation, TCN-9 was then affiliated with HSV-7 (because
they were both Australia's first television stations, having been
opened in 1956), and GTV-9's sister affiliate was ATN-7. By the
late 1960s, the network had begun calling itself the "National Nine
Network", and became simply the "Nine Network" in 1988. Before the
official conversion to colour on 1 March 1975, it was the first
Australian television station to regularly screen programmes in colour
with the first program to use it premiering in 1971,
the very year NTD-8 in Darwin opened its doors.
In 1967, the
New South Wales
New South Wales Rugby Football League grand final became
the first football grand final of any code to be televised live in
Nine Network paid $5,000 (equivalent to $53,828.67 in
2010) for the broadcasting rights.
In the late 1980s, STW-9 Perth, which opened in 1965, became a Nine
Network owned-and-operated station when Bond Media purchased the
network. However, in 1989, Bond Media sold the Perth-based station to
Sunraysia Television for A$95 million, due to the federal cross-media
ownership laws which restricted the level of national reach for media
In 2011 GTV 9 Melbourne moved from 22 Bendigo Street, Richmond, to 717
Bourke Street, Docklands. 22 Bendigo Street started out as the
Wertheim Piano Factory, then became the Heinz Soup Factory, then GTV9.
The building in Bendigo Street still stands, now as luxury apartments.
1977–2006: The golden era
Nine began using the slogan "Let Us Be The One" (based on The
Carpenters song) in 1977 and became the number-one free-to-air network
in Australia; its
National Nine News
National Nine News became the most-watched news
service. In 1978, Nine switched its slogan to "Still the One"
(modelled on the campaign used by ABC in the United States), which
lasted until the ratings downfall in January 2006. During the 1980s,
Nine's ratings peaked. From 1999 to 2001, the network began losing
ground to the Seven network in news and entertainment, but received a
boost after the coverage of the 11 September attacks in 2001.[citation

Kerry Packer in 2005 triggered more problems
for the network. Digital terrestrial television was introduced on 1
2006–2008: Nine loses to Seven
Nine stayed strong throughout 2003–04, winning 77 out of 80 ratings
weeks across those two years (with
Network Ten claiming the other
three weeks), but was hit hard when Seven introduced a new line-up
in 2005, though Nine finished ahead of Seven that year. Meanwhile,
National Nine News
National Nine News was overtaken by
Seven News for the first time
ever, while Today was beaten by Seven's fledgling Sunrise program.
In 2006, Nine continued on its downward trend, losing most news weeks
Seven News and just winning the year thanks to its coverage of the
2006 Commonwealth Games. To try to revitalise the network in its 50th
anniversary, Nine adopted a new, but critically received, logo that
removed the nine dots, which had been part of the network's identity
since 1964. In May 2007, Nine partially reintroduced
the Nine dots, which resulted in the square logo changing into a
three-dimensional (3D) cube that rotates, with the dots visible on
every second side of the cube.
After a period of declining ratings,
David Gyngell returned to the job
of chief executive officer in October 2007, succeeding Eddie McGuire.
In 2007, despite several hits, Seven won the whole year by a
significant margin. The
Seven Network had won 38 weeks, whereas the
Nine Network only won two.
2008–2015: Expanding digital services
In 2008, as part of a major relaunch, the network dropped the blue
box, and reinstated its nine dots in its logo, with a 3D look. After
losing viewers to Seven News, Nine relaunched its news service as Nine
News, which managed to win more weeks over Seven in the first half of
2008. Nine also launched a break-out hit, Underbelly, which attracted
over 2.5 million viewers in its first season. Nine tried to attract
younger demographics, so while Seven went on to win the ratings year
in total people, Nine was rated the number one network in the key
18–49 and 25–54 demographics.
In March 2008, The
Nine Network launched a high definition channel
called Nine HD on channel 90 until 2010.
In 2009, Nine started relatively strongly due to the top-rating
Australian drama Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities and the Twenty20
Cricket series, but could not hold its audience after Network Ten's
Australia became a hit. Nine became inconsistent with
scheduling and removal of programmes. Nine also launched a number of
reality shows, including Ladette to Lady, Wipeout Australia, HomeMADE,
Australia's Perfect Couple, and The Apprentice Australia, in the hope
of achieving the same success other networks had with the genre. All
the new formats underperformed in the ratings and did not help the
network establish any stable local content. Nine also expanded its
news strand with the reintroduction of a late night bulletin (for its
owned-and-operated stations), an extended morning bulletin and weekend
editions of Today. The flagship 6:00 pm state bulletins continued
to fall in the ratings, though its Melbourne bulletin remained
competitive, being the only market to win any weeks against Seven
In August 2009, Nine launched its own digital multi-channel called GO!
on Channel 99, primarily aimed at a younger demographic. The shares
from GO! contributed to Nine's weekly shares and allowed it to enjoy
several weeks of weekly ratings wins. In September, the network took
on a new slogan, "Welcome Home", and revamped its graphic package.
With the resurgence of Nine News, growth of Today, stabilisation of 60
Minutes and a new programme line-up consisting of Hey Hey It's
Underbelly and Sea Patrol, Nine enjoyed more ratings
In 2010, Nine obtained the rights to exclusive coverage of the Sydney
New Year's Eve fireworks. GO! won the year in digital shares only. On
26 September 2010, Nine launched their third digital channel GEM (an
acronym of General Entertainment and Movies) on Channel 90. In 2011,
Nine Network announced a new "Home of Comedy" line-up with comedy
shows such as Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, and other
American sitcoms, along with the launch of a live comedy show Ben
Elton Live From Planet Earth, which was cancelled after only three
episodes due to low ratings. Nine also brought back This Is Your Life
Eddie McGuire as host, although the series was cancelled after
airing four episodes. The
Nine Network had success in the ratings in
the second half of 2011 with The Block, Underbelly: Razor, and The
Celebrity Apprentice Australia. The highly anticipated return of a
revamped ninth season of
Two and a Half Men
Two and a Half Men proved a huge success for
the network, generating 2.3 million viewers and dominating the week as
top program. The return of new episodes of the popular sitcom The
Big Bang Theory was also a huge success for the network, scoring high
figures consistently week after week and dominating the evening as top
program. Despite this, the
Nine Network finished in second place in
the ratings again in 2011 on 19.6%, behind the
Seven Network (23.1%)
and ahead of the
Network Ten (15.9%), ABC (12.2%) and SBS (4.6%).
On 24 November 2011, the
Nine Network announced the line-up for 2012,
with a focus on reality programs, including an Australian version of
The Voice, the return of Big Brother, Excess Baggage, and The
Celebrity Apprentice Australia. The
Nine Network also aired
coverage of the
2012 Summer Olympics
2012 Summer Olympics in London. A new morning show,
"Mornings", replaced the departure of Kerri-Anne Kennerley's
self-titled show, after nine years on air. The program is hosted
Sonia Kruger and David Campbell.
On 26 March 2012, the
Nine Network launched Extra, a new channel aimed
at delivering home shopping, brand funded, religious, community,
educational and multi-cultural programming content created by
It was reported on 31 May 2012 that the Australian telecommunications
WIN Television Network CEO, Bruce Gordon, are
considering making a takeover bid for Nine Entertainment. The
network currently is trying to fight off
administration as it deals with a debt exceeding A$3.3 billion.
It was reported on 3 June 2013 that the
Nine Network would immediately
purchase Adelaide affiliate NWS-9 from the
WIN Corporation as part of
a deal to secure international cricket television rights. On 3
July 2013, it was reported that Nine would exercise an option to also
buy STW-9 from WIN Corporation. Both purchases have resulted in
these stations being, once again, O&O stations of the network for
the first time since the 1980s.
As of 10 December 2013, Nine no longer broadcasts on analog TV and is
now only available through digital TV or digital set-top box.
On 27 January 2014, the
Nine Network have stopped using the Supertext
logo and have switched to their own Closed Captioning logo.
2015–present: A new era in television
On 26 November 2015, Nine relaunched 9HD, an HD simulcast of their
primary channel, on channel 90 and launched new lifestyle channel
9Life on channel 94. In addition to the relaunch of 9HD, GEM (renamed
9Gem) was reduced to standard definition and moved to channel 92 and
GO! (renamed 9Go!) was moved to channel 93. On 16 December
2015, Nine also changed its on-air theme for a continuous design
across all of its channels with the Nine News/9news.com.au branding to
remain unchanged. This included a new look for program listings,
program advertisements and promos. Additionally in November 2015, Hugh
David Gyngell as CEO.
On 27 January 2016, Nine's online catch-up video on demand service
9Jumpin was retired and replaced by 9Now.
9Now offers a range of
content larger than 9Jumpin and also offers a live streaming service
for Nine's multicast channels. Live streaming for Nine was launched on
the same day, with streaming for 9Gem,
9Life launched on 19
May 2016. Following the launch of 9Now, the WIN Corporation, owner of
Nine affiliate WIN Television, filed a lawsuit against Nine
Entertainment Co., claiming that live streaming into regional areas
breaches their affiliation agreement. The case was later
dismissed on 28 April 2016 with Justice Hammerschlag of the NSW
Supreme Court stating that, "I have concluded that live streaming is
not broadcasting within the meaning of the PSA (program supply
agreement), and that Nine is under no express or implied obligation
not to do it."
Following their victory in the
9Now court case, Nine Entertainment Co.
announced on 29 April 2016 that it had signed a $500 million five year
affiliation deal with Southern Cross Austereo, the then-primary
regional affiliate of Network Ten. Beginning 1 July 2016, WIN
Television will lose its Nine affiliate status to Southern Cross,
which will have Nine's metropolitan branding introduced across its
television assets. Nine later secured an affiliate deal with
Mildura Digital Television, a joint venture between WIN and Prime
Media Group, on 28 June 2016 to supply Nine content to the Mildura and
Sunraysia area due to WIN switching affiliation to Network Ten.
Nine finalised supply deals with WIN for South
Australia and Griffith
on 29 June 2016 after long negotiations, with a deal for
Tasmanian joint venture TDT secured the following day after long
negotiations. A supply deal for Western
West Digital Television
West Digital Television was not secured before the 1 July 2016
deadline, but a deal was later finalised on 2 July 2016 with
programming resuming that night.

Logo and identity history
Nine Network logo, which consists of a numeral "9" beside nine
dots arranged in a 3x3 grid, is one of the most recognisable logos in
In 1997, the dots were changed to spheres. The spheres returned to
dots as a new on-air identity package was created by Velvet
mediendesign in 2001.
In 2002, the dots were changed back to spheres as well as the '9'
becoming 3D for their '7 colours for 7 days' presentation package.
In 2006, the network and its affiliates relaunched their logos to
coincide with Nine's 50th anniversary. The iconic "9" numeral was
reworked with a few rounded corners eliminated in the process. logo
uses a 2D blue cube with the "9" inside it, which saw the removal of
the nine dots. The graphics package used during that time was designed
by Bruce Dunlop Associates.
Later in 2007, the cube became a solid 3D box, and in May 2007
partially relaunched the nine dots, which are visible on every second
surface of the box.
As a part of a major relaunch,
Nine Network completely reinstated the
nine-dots logo on 14 January 2008. The dots are represented by
translucent 3D discs during that year. The music used throughout the
network's idents and promotions was "Smile" by The Supernaturals. The
dots are now a bit bigger and the "9" of the previous logo continues.
Both Adelaide and Perth stations did not revive the Nine Network's
famous 'nine dots' due to their ownership by WIN Corporation.
In February 2009, the dots were 2D again as part of a brand refresh.
Later in September 2009, the dots were changed to spheres yet again
when the network's current slogan Welcome Home was launched. The dots
were made smaller like the old logo. It also began to reuse the iconic
"Still The One" theme tune in its idents. In March 2010, Adelaide
and Perth stations finally revived the dots, after four years since
using the unified identity.
In April 2012, Nine Network's identity changed, applying the logo in
different colours such as red, green, purple, and more. It is also
reminiscent of the 2002 ident package.
