Nine to stream all channels, 7Live to have full launch next week.

From http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2015/10/nine-to-stream-all-channels-7live-to-have-full-launch-next-week.html

Nine is set to join Seven with the streaming of its three channels online. Nine will begin Upfronts with advertisers this week, in which it is expected to confirm all three channels will be available on desktop and devices.

It follows Seven announcing its plans for 7Live earlier this year, and streaming Sunrise on tablets and phones in August. Australian Financial Review reports Seven will now bring its streaming plans forward, from December 1st to next week, taking advantage of Melbourne Cup Day, Tuesday November 3rd.

The streaming will be geo-located to local markets. But the move has raised the ire of regional broadcasters lobbying the government to remove the reach rule and arguing that current rules are out of date. Andrew Lancaster, chief executive of Nine’s regional affiliate, WIN Corporation, said: “It makes no sense that regional broadcasters are constrained by the reach rule whilst metro broadcasters are free to stream their channels across regional Australia.

The legislation needs to enter the same century as the technology.” John Hartigan, chairman of Seven’s regional affiliate, Prime Media, added, of Nine’s plans: “It’s further proof of how outdated the media legislation is. I don’t have any issues with Nine, as we are not their affiliate partner, but this shows our laws are stuck in horse and buggy days when the rest of the world is turbocharged.”

Excitingly, OzTAM is finally set to launch an audience measure called Video Player Measurement, which will combine audiences across TV, mobile, tablet and desktop, in early November.

Cricket - for sure.  And V8 supercars.  Some NRL and AFL matches.

But Super 15 - not so much, thats Fox Sports.  Wallaby games - yes.  But even the RWC would only have got you Wallabies games and Knockout games.

always a bit of a head scratcher to me why people make such a song and dance about streaming standard linear broadcast TV.

the main benefit of the internet is that TV no longer needs to be 'broadcast'. Instead it can be "On Demand" - i.e. when YOU want to watch it, not what some programmer in their head office decides "ok, at 8.30 we'll let people watch this show. If they want to watch this other thing though, we'll that's tough, they'll need to wait until 10pm"

Seems totally pointless to put a linear broadcast over the internet when you could do so much more and make the content available at ANY time.

I guess it's fine for stuff like live sports, but literally any other content is better served via an ondemand mechanism (like Netflix, Lightbox etc)

Linear tv is nowhere dead and never will be. They said the same about radio when tv came along.. Sometimes you just want to sit down and watch something without mucking around with apps and on demand services and other nonsense.

I hope its in decent quality and someone makes a Kodi video addon for it.

Also you may find that major live sports actually gets blacked out of the livestream.

Not going to be easily possible to block access to certain states like they did with Underbelly being barred in Victoria during a murder trial.

Australians can already watch the v8's on Tenplay.  Thats Ten's catchup offering with live streaming of news and some sports.

Hard to believe that if Nine are launching and Seven are bringing plans forward, that Ten wont be far behind in doing full live streaming of their broadcast.

Agree this makes sense for live content only, sports primarily, only.

Considering anything non sports on Aussie TV is utter garbage anyway...

Still good to see them trying to keep with the times.

Streaming/on demand stuff does require thought (what am I going to watch) - often we will sit down, spend 10 minutes going through options, then turn off. 

Probably for the best.

Don't know if I agree.

If freeviewNZ had a similar feature I think it would be quiet awesome. 
No more UHF antenna/or satellite, and wiring to other rooms etc.. Lets not forget the Masthead Amplifiers and all. 

Couple live TV over the internet with MyFreeview+ and you have a winning system.

Less wires will always get my vote.

Apsattv: Linear tv is nowhere dead and never will be. They said the same about radio when tv came along.. Sometimes you just want to sit down and watch something without mucking around with apps and on demand services and other nonsense.

"they" also said the same thing about the horse and cart... and they were right.

I think it's a generational thing. when I see my kids watching TV, they simply have no time for adverts, and no willingness to be told what to watch.  They only ever watch Netflix, Lightbox, and Youtube. They won't even watch recorded stuff on the TiVo since you have to FWD through the adverts and that is too much hassle.

The only times they have watched scheduled linear TV was when we stayed in a bach that had no internet - and there didn't understand why they couldn't just decide to watch what they wanted, and why they couldn't go back and start a show from the beginning.  I'm pretty confident they will never be brainwashed into watching standard linear TV.

So whats the planned date to switch off all of New Zealands UHF DVB-T transmitters?
