Nine’s senior sports leadership is projecting significant audience growth in preparation for the launch of its second season of Suncorp Super Netball.
Nine’s inaugural year broadcasting the all new Suncorp Super Netball competition has been a huge success, with bumper audiences tuning in to the Grand Final between the Giants Netball and Sunshine Coast Lightning.
The traditional business model used by many Australian sporting codes – built on selling broadcast rights to media partners – will rapidly evolve towards one focused on revenue sharing, Amanda Laing, Managing Director of Nine, has predicted.
9GEM is the new home of netball. From February 18, Wide World of Sports will broadcast the new-look national league, Suncorp Super Netball, in prime time throughout the season.
