FTA TV audiences increased by 5 per cent

Not a huge increase considering we're coming off a low base.

This remains the frontier the league management are struggling to crack. Hopefully some better timeslots and main channel coverage next season will help.

"Game 1 got just 24k on Fox Sports"

That's not too bad considering it was on the secondary channel 9 channels. Anyone know what the viewer numbers were on FTA? I know of a handful of people who tuned in that wouldn't have been able to if it was a fox exclusive. Hopefully it had a decent rating.

Just noticed channel 9 is showing the Super Netball League PRE SEASON grand final at the same time as Game 2, which is on 9Go. That is seriously messed up. NBL must do something about their FTA issues.

Netball is played by women though and there's a big push to promote women's sports right now to be politically correct

So the NBL gets bumped because of that? I dont see the AFL or any other league get 'downgraded' to a secondary channel in favour of womens sport just to push a political agenda.

Its more to do with the NBL still being perceived as a lesser league than any other sports league, including the Super netball pre-season competition. And they probably use poor TV ratings for the NBL to justify doing it.

NBL being on ANY freeview channel is an upgrade

Despite our PC world the WNBL has been ignored even though it is the oldest professional women's league by far. No credit at all goes to it for providing a pathway to female athletes way before it became an in vogue latest trendy thing to do.
