9Now teases summer titles

Nine will offer new episodes of Manifest, New Amsterdam (pictured) and Amy Poehler comedy I Feel Bad on 9Now over summer and into 2019.

“Our ambition is to deliver premium entertainment across the 12 months of the year for both our audience and advertisers,” said Hamish Turner, Nine’s Program Director. “Alongside summer’s biggest sporting event, the Australian Open, you will see the biggest new show out of the US Manifest and a collection of Nine favourites including The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, The Middle, E.R and 2 Broke Girls.

“Our goal with 9Now is to provide our audience with the best access to entertainment, anywhere, anytime enabling greater engagement for brands during one of busiest retail periods of the year – Christmas and into 2019.”

Thanks to hits like Married at First Sight and Love Island 9Now has a monthly audience of more than 2.2m users each month with more than 7 million signed users.

“For the past two years we have done a summer initiative to build up our BVOD audience,” said Pippa Leary, Nine’s Commercial Director – Digital Sales. “But this year we are doubling down and ramping up our offering as we head into the biggest event of the year in the Australian BVOD space – Married at First Sight.”

Airdates for new shows are yet to be announced.

  1. Does this mean all seasons of 2 Broke Girls and The Big Bang Theory will soon be available? Presto from memory was the last place The Big Bang Theory up to about Season 8 I think… and was available on demand and 2 Broke Girls was only ever on 9 Now for catchup as it aired on tv .

    • After Presto closed down, Big Bang Theory was only available as it aired on tv for a limited time I think and 2 Broke Girls I’ve never seen full seasons available on 9Now.

    Rather cool that 9 have picked up ER for their catch up service. As far as I’m aware no other services in Australia currently show it which is surprising considering how popular it was.

  3. They picked up all of NBCs new fall shows which is a bit interesting.
    It’d be good if 7Flix and 9Gem(or life) were transformed to channels purely for new international shows. Flix is already going that way (sort of). Nine following suit could bring multichannels up.

  4. All the FTA networks really need are dedicated drama channels for showing full seasons of their overseas made shows and not just a sister channel that is occasionally used as an afterthought for mothballed re-releases and shows that have long finished being broadcast in the USA or likely being cancelled. These networks have purchased the rights after all.

  5. So after summer I wonder if programs like Manifest will have a 9 broadcast to catch up with what’s already been shown on 9Now…..good idea as long as those that start on 9 who may want to continue watching on 9 after summer can
    Not that I expect Manifest to last long though
