WIN signs last-minute deal with Nine

nine network ident aAusBN – WIN Television, the world’s largest privately owned regional television network, has narrowly avoided going off air by signing a last-minute programming deal extension with Nine.

The existing deal between the two media organisations was due to expire at midnight, but for a long time they couldn’t agree on terms for a new deal.

At the last minute, they agreed on a six-month extension up to 30 June 2016 to their affiliation agreement, through which WIN has access to Nine’s programming.

“The six-month agreement extension provides a continuing program supply for our viewers and advertisers as we explore business opportunities,” said WIN CEO Andrew Lancaster.

It is suspected that future business opportunities could include a merger with Nine if the federal government relaxes media ownership laws in the coming year.

WIN is headquartered in Wollongong and broadcasts in the Australian Capital Territory, Tasmania, and most of regional New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Victoria.
