Latest US season of THE BACHELORETTE arrives on 9NOW

Channel 9 has finally decided to roll out the latest season of the US version of The Bachelorette.

Season 15, broadcast in America some 12 months ago, makes its down under debut with the complete season now available on 9Now.

It appears this season will not be shown on broadcast television and seems to be part of Nine’s digital strategy for 9Now to be the home of some premiere viewing. Season 2 of Manifest was available on the platform before being available to screen on Nine.

However, there is no indication from Nine on why this digital strategy did not include showing this season express from the US on 9Now, rather than waiting 12 months.

The Bachelor US is licensed to Nine, but as the network did not screen season 23, that particular season has been picked up by Foxtel, which started screening last month. Season 24, which aired abroad 6 months ago, is licensed by Nine but has not been made available yet to Australian fans.

The US version of Bachelor in Paradise, also licensed by Nine, has not been screened at all for a couple of seasons.

Nine has previously declined to comment on scheduling of The Bachelor franchise from America.

The Bachelorette US – now screening on 9Now.
