The Nine Network is one of Australia's top-rating commercial television networks. Its backbone is the three television stations in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, along with the regional broadcaster, NBN, and agreements with other regional operators.
The Nine Network's strength and consistency comes from its extensive news and current affairs coverage, rights to broadcast popular sporting events and its slate of comedy, entertainment and lifestyle programs.
The Nine Network continues to set benchmarks in news and sports coverage with multi award-winning shows including The Voice, The Block and Underbelly. 2013 is shaping up as Nine's biggest year with Big Brother, House Husbands, The Block Sky High, and Australia’s Got Talent still to come.
Originally established in 1956 as Nine Network, it was separately listed on the Australian Stock Exchange as Network Nine Australia Limited from 1990 until 1994.
In 1994 Publishing and Broadcasting Limited was created through the merger of Nine and ACP Magazines.
The Nine Network is now 100% owned by the Nine Entertainment Co.
