The afl is not for profit so no tax to be paid obviously. I think the funds distributed to the “partner” would then be taxed yes?

Well only if it made a profit and as a not for profit it wouldn’t I would guess. I’m unclear if distributions to investors would come from a set amount they had to pay them ... thus a cost like wages.... or if they were required to generate profit (thus no longer nfp) to distribute earnings.

Despite a more than unusual 2020 season, Foxtel is thrilled a record number of fans are watching the game on their services.

In Foxtel Group viewer data released on Wednesday, the company announced an 18 per cent rise in viewer numbers when compared to the opening 14 rounds of the 2019 season.

Fox League exclusive matches are up 19 per cent across all platforms.

The data covers Foxtel set-top boxes together with streaming platforms Foxtel Now, Foxtel Go and the fast-growing Kayo. It confirms 2020 as the top-rating NRL season for the group.

Fox Sports executive director Steve Crawley was ecstatic about the results.

"We've had some wonderful NRL seasons in recent times and just when a lot of people thought this year’s competition wouldn't go ahead, WHAM, the season has the best ratings ever – the best of the best," he said.

"Peter V'landys and Andrew Abdo have led the way at League Central, and we are proud to partner them at Fox League. This Thursday night it's the Eels and the Storm. How about that! This game just keeps giving."

The post-COVID season return saw round three generate the biggest audience for an NRL round in Foxtel history, while the round six clash between the Roosters and the Eels recorded the company's biggest ever NRL audience with a cumulative average of 507,000.

Fox Sports sales and brand partnerships director Martin Medcraf added: "The record ratings for Fox League reflect the increasing appetite among Australian audiences for sport."


Wow Just Wow!


Rugby League, the dominant force in Australian sport! :cheers:

The record-breaking season was driven by an increase in the average live audience for Foxtel Now, Foxtel GO and Kayo audiences, which were up over 150%.

Fox Sports Executive Director Steve Crawley said: “We’ve had some wonderful NRL seasons in recent times and just when a lot of people thought this year’s competition wouldn’t go ahead, WHAM, the season has the best ratings ever – the best of the best. “Peter V’landys and Andrew Abdo have led the way at League Central, and we are proud to partner them at Fox League. This Thursday night it’s the Eels and the Storm. How about that! This game just keeps giving.”

based on last two days releases - and a grand total of 8 matches - AFL ratings on Kayo/Fox Now/Fox Go are about 52% of its overall Fox ratings. Its 38% for the NRL. Not really enough data to be conclusive though. Data: https://theage.com.au/sport/afl/footy-f ... 55nxu.html and https://adnews.com.au/news/foxtel-wins- ... of-the-nrl


So fox ratings between AFL and NRL are probably closer than the ratings only suggest. AFL fans seem to have adopted Kayo over fox at a greater proportion

You need to re read the article , your STV, despite the lockdowns and prime time viewing is up just 10 % .

Sounded like Fox were using cumulative numbers, would this be right :hmm:

do you maybe think Melbourne punters took up Streaming services like no tomorrow due to the face you guys are in lock down
and have had huge restrictions since basically end of March..
which is contributing to AFL's Big rise

Seven West Media and FOX seem to think so..

point is they are taking up kayo in larger proportions than fox. Therefore we compare cummulative ratings for the season, which are BS anyway, the AFL is missing a substantial tally of viewers. The other point is a comparison of foxtel ratings only are not a fair comparison
