TV Networks are lifting their game when it comes to speedily adding episodes to their online platforms.
A quick check of key sites last night indicated all 5 Free to Air networks had added Sunday shows online. That’s good news for everyone.
Plus7 had added The X Factor and Sunday Night clips.
TEN had added Junior MasterChef clips but not Offspring.
SBS had added Mad Men and Dateline.
ABC’s iView had added Compass and Life but not Midsomer Murders.
Understandably, some networks won’t add content until after programmes have aired in Perth. Several include sponsor content.
While there is still room for improvement, it’s much better than it was a year ago or two ago when everything was getting added the next working day. Networks are now showing an understanding that viewers expect immediacy. If you’ve missed it on TV, you’ll turn pretty quickly to online to view it there.
If you know of any shows that are too slow in being added to catch-up sites, feel free to tell the rest of us about it.
