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.
