  1. Using the PVR is just another confirmation that viewers need flexible options for viewing their favourite TV shows, this will obviously be an advertising headache for revenue hungry broadcasters which I guess is the real reason for the growth of reality TV. Streaming sites like Netflix and binge watching whole seasons (if you prefer) on your tablet or Smart TV will become increasingly common as far as our viewing habits are concerned.

  2. Interesting that Supergirl and The Flash are there, but no showing for Arrow, does that mean it is not rating as well compared to its fellow superhero shows?

  3. The FTA episodes are in the list simply because they are high rating events or premieres.

    Actually surprised that the timeshifts for Foxtel dramas are so low. I never watch anything but sport live on cable.

  4. Since I got a point and click remote I don’t even see the ads in fast forward. I just click 4 minutes ahead in the timeline. A lot of people complain about the ‘smug’ woman in the Ford ad but I wouldn’t know. I’ve never seen her. :p

  5. Interesting how timeshifting is almost non-existent in Australia compared to other countries, particularly the US, where many shows receive triple digit percentage gains even in Live+3 ratings.

    • Really? The time shift % changes in Oz seem on par with the weekly % increase charts I see at TVByTheNumbers. What shows / where are you seeing US shows get triple digit gains.

      And if you look at the Foxtel Timeshift – up to 300% gains. People with access to 100+ channels time shift more.

      • In terms of cable they are very similar, but when comparing terrestrial networks it’s vastly different. Here, the highest timeshift increase on FTA is 66%. In the US on the Big 4, timeshift increases can be up to double that.

        The triple digit network timeshift increase figures I was referring to are in particular shows like Quantico, and Empire.

  6. I watched both House of Hancock and Catching Milat around 2 months after broadcast. Have to be in the mood for it and could never watch live with all those commercials. I still have Houdini Pts 1&2 watching to be watched since June.
