TV audience measurement
OzTAM is the official source of television audience measurement for the five mainland metropolitan markets in Australia – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth – and nationally for subscription TV.
OzTAM TV ratings are audience estimates that are based on actual viewing behaviour of 5,250 homes in Australian metro cities. The homes provide a representative sample of the Australian population and when the TV in these homes is switched on, the meter lights up and asks who is watching. Viewers log in and out when they enter or leave the room and the meter gauges all TVs within the home.

Nowhere there does it say its a survey , Terry is right & if you care to look again , FTA ratings they're collated by a black boxes placed in 5250 homes across Aust , representing all 26 Million of us . Its voodoo stuff
STV however is via either the foxtel set top box straight back to foxtel via every home that has them & via an IP address for Kayo
so STV ratings are way more accurate
foxtel know exactly what is being watch by each box or IP address, & i think they give oztam their daily results for reporting
NRL 2021 average 371K
AFL 2021 average 248K
the NRL aggregate STV audience for 2021 200 games X 371K for 74.2 Million
the AFL aggregate , 207 games X 248K for 51.3 Million
