WIN is King?

By johnboy - 13 August 2008 34

The Canberra Times is reporting that WIN rules the roost in local TV ratings:

    “The sixth ratings survey of the year had WIN with the largest audience share in Canberra of 27.7 per cent, ahead of its nearest rival, ABC1, with 23 per cent.

    Prime came in third with 22.3 per cent, followed by Southern Cross Ten (18.8) and SBS-TV (8.1).”

Prime is hoping that Olympic saddos will carry them to victory in the next survey.

On TV I mostly watch...

I have always loved the local and homely approach of WIN, first they appoint the very girl next door Jess, and then teamed it up with the slogan:

“when wind breaks, WIN news”.

I’ve got to agree the Chn 7 coverage is aimed squarely at the Brain dead ADD sufferers. SBS is a whole heap better. It’s sad that the “ratings” don’t differentiate between people who actively ‘watch’ a programme and those who stare blankly at the screen with vacant looks in their eyes.

are there olympics on?

If we all had a dollar for everytime they’ve shown that dumb Eddie the eel montage.

Agreed…the 7 coverage is average at best. Too much chopping & changing, no actual updates on what has been happening & no definition between live & replayed coverage.

Agreed here too – I have only been watching it intermittently because it’s driving me absolutely nuts. The worst thing for me has been those bloody montages of a bunch of slow motion clips that they seem to insist on sticking on after every ad break that seem to run for half the total segment. What the hell are they meant to achieve? They’re not to attract viewers – after all, we’re already watching (or at least I was until the 4th one where I snapped and turned it over to an interesting documentary on some cult or other that the ABC was screening). They’re not ads to make them money, so I’m damned if I can figure it out. I just find myself asking “isn’t there actual sport going on now that you could be covering?”. The answer seems to be “yeah, but we can’t be arsed – here, watch this same slow motion montage for the 5th time in the last hour and a half”.

The Olympics coverage on Prime is for those with ADD – far too much chopping and changing.

I have been mostly watching on SBS, which is where I watch most of my TV (Top Gear, Mythbusters, Cycling, *Real* nightly news).

missed crouching tiger on SBS, was on the web whilst my wife watched the opening ceremony on prime (and PVR’d it for the kids) – she “neglected” to mention that it was on.

If Prime is hoping that ‘Olympic saddos’ will carry them to victory in the next survey they’re sadly mistaken. I’m already watching the games solely on SBS as I cannot stand the offal being proffered as ‘sports broadcasting’ by 7. From the intelligence-insulting ‘Yum Cha’ in the morning to the smarmy ocker in a suit that is Matthew White in the evening there is absolutely nothing to recommend their coverage. And don’t get me started on the adverts. Or Anna Coren.

The only time my TV turns on is to use my media center…

Ralph 10:43 am 13 Aug 08

I’ve been watching Olympics on Prime, but generally steer clear of pov free to air content. The Olympics HD channel doesn’t look very HD though….

The ABC is a beautiful example of the type of programming you get from state sponsored outlets: full of bias; agenda barrows; and content that 80% of the television audience finds unacceptable.

justbands 10:35 am 13 Aug 08

Thanks, I was looking for the Fox option also. General comment….I’m unable to respond to most RiotACT polls because the options never seem to fit. They are always too extreme one way or the other, or just silly. Put up some sane polls answers & I’m sure you’d get a greater response.

johnboy 10:32 am 13 Aug 08

Apologies, added now.

Normally we won’t alter polls once they’re live but as we only just sent it live not too much harm done.

Holden Caulfield 10:30 am 13 Aug 08

Where’s the Foxtel option?

The only FTA TV I regularly watch is on ABC, so while helping Prime go for Gold during the Olympics I can’t get over Channel 7’s over the top pathetic slime ball TVCs. Wooaaah they lay on the sop and emotional crap thick at Ch7 these days.
