Winners, Losers and Budget Cuts | TV Blackbox S02E04

One week out from the formal start of the 2019 ratings year and this week's podcast will make you question EVERYTHING you thought you knew about all of that. Plus there's some great chat and analysis of various shows and how we think they're going.

So, you know... swings and roundabouts.

Each week the TV Blackbox team take you behind the scenes, wade through the PR spin and launch into the reality that is the Australian television business.

  • The OzTAM official results for 2018 are in.

  • Two weeks in Molk discusses how the MAFS v MKR battle is going.

  • Rob has a chat with Nine's Chief Sales Officer MICHAEL STEPHENSON about the importance of BVOD, livestream and catch-up figures to the networks.
