The Nine Network is not worth a cent, according to Analyst
« on: July 01, 2008, 12:42:13 PM »
PBL - the company that owns the Nine Network and ACP Magazines has been values as worthless according to this report:

Sounds like Karma for Nein to me  ;D

Ha ha ha ha, oh how my heart bleeds for them.... NOT!

Perhaps, if they stopped wasting all their money on frivelous lawsuits, they'd have some left to spent on decent programming content and wouldn't be so deep in the mire. 

I, for one, would/will not mourn their passing.

I think they have lost touch with what their core viewerbase used to be.   My Mum&Dad used to watch Nine news all the time, and lots of Nine shows.   Now, if you aren't a CSI fan, don't like reality slut crap (like Ladette to L) and other reality trash, then Nein mostly isn't for you.
I guess being a sci-fi nut, I was pissed off no end when they removed their much advertised Terminator TSCC from HD to make way for that Lad2L tripe.  Last night catching up on a few CSI-NY, I saw Nein are advertising a male equivalent of the slut show Ladette to Lady....(see Nein, I record your shows and still watch advertising you imbeciles). Nein, you have really lost the plot.
You read lots of little bits in various places (e.g. Peter Vogels blog here http://www.vogelross.com.au/vrblog/ but this is one of many of these types of analysis out there), where youth are switching off TV in droves, but trying to attract them back with utter tripe is alienating Neins core viewer base in my opinion.

Even though I'm not a big Nine fan, them not showing Terminator has more to do with the fact that there are no more episodes at this time, most of the series this year where cut short due to the writers strike.

No, I am talking about on HD.   They moved it from one timeslot to the next, but it was always on HD & SD at the beginning.   Then when they introduced that tripe L2L, they moved it to 10.30 to follow that, but on HD they put L2L then Nightline on.
