State of Origin breaks live streaming records

The third State of Origin match has set a new record in Live Streaming for Free to Air.

The game drew 174,000 in Live VPM, eclipsing a record set by the recent NRL Grand Final.

State of Origin III Nine 174,000
NRL Grand Final Match Nine 153,000
2020 Australian Open D14 – Men’s Final Nine 86,000
Married at First Sight Finale Nine 79,000
Big Brother: Winner Announced Seven 78,000


  1. Sadly though they stream it 720p which is quite strange as it is produced in 1080i…. VBR makes it look very choppy on my Apple TV 4K via the 9Now app.

  2. I tried to log in via the 9Now iOS app with about 20 minutes to go and couldn’t get on. I tried again through my browser and got a message that said the platform was at capacity. The number could’ve been higher if their platform could handle it.
