How many times does it need to explained to you? The heartland markets which see their side on FTA are perth and adelaide, not melbourne.pussycat wrote: ↑Mon Apr 08, 2019 11:51 amleeroy*NRL* wrote: ↑Mon Apr 08, 2019 11:06 amok Fair,

1 NRL GAME

3 AFL GAMES

1st game shown at 2:20pm
2nd game shown at 3:20pm
3rd game shown at 5:20pm
AFL FREMANTLE V ST KILDA FOX FOOTY 166,000
AFL WESTERN BULLDOGS V GOLD COAST FOX FOOTY 141,000
AFL HAWTHORN V NORTH MELBOURNE FOX SPORTS 503 109,000
- all 3 AFL games overlap which splits the ratings hence foxtel is well below 200k
- there are 9 hours of AFL compared to only 2hrs of NRL. People are far more likely to tune in to a few hours than 9
2/3 of people can watch just 1 match in the AFL or NRL.
By showing the home team into every state on FTA it more than that makes up for any overlapping. Its also pretty clear most of these matches are just the left over games. the likes of the Bulldogs, North's, freemantle ratings would have decreased not risen as people tuned out to watch the news. Or something of interest like there grass grow).
And there was a second NRL game it got 280k
Did docker fans get to see their club play on fta? Yes. Did broncos fans get to see their club on fta? Yes.
Both codes have this advantage. The AFL need more games to do it though.
Yes the AFL show adelaide clubs and perth clubs into their respective cities more often than broncos into brisbane, but that doesnt cover the loss they get from concurrent scheduling, not be a long shot
It has nothing to do with left over games. Melb v ess was probably the worst matchul of the round and got well over 1mil viewers
