WIN Television is an Australian television network owned by WIN
Corporation that is based in Wollongong, New South Wales. WIN
commenced transmissions on 18 March 1962 as a single Wollongong-only
station, and has since expanded to 24 owned-and-operated stations with
transmissions covering a larger geographical area of
any other television network except for
Australia Plus which
broadcasts to 44 countries. In most areas it is a primary affiliate of
Network Ten. of
The network's name, WIN is a reference to its original Wollongong
station WIN-4, itself an acronym of
Illawarra New South
Wales. Through its news division, WIN News,
WIN Television broadcasts
a half-hour news service to twenty regional markets.

Wollongong Transmission Limited (TWT), was incorporated on
4 October 1955 by a group of local businessmen. Five years later, it
was awarded a licence by the
Postmaster-General's Department broadcast
Illawarra and South Coast regions, over a number of other
groups aligned to Sydney-based stations
ATN-7 and TCN-9. The new
station was to broadcast on the VHF-4 frequency, using the callsign
WIN (which stood for
Wollongong (and the)
Illawarra Network or
Illawarra New South Wales, in line with other
Australian callsigns). Soon after, a plot of land was purchased at
Fort Drummond, approximately two kilometres south of the Wollongong
central business district, for the station's television studios.
Prior to the opening night's transmissions, WIN-4 undertook a
television conversion program, aimed at encouraging residents to
acquire new tuning equipment and converting television sets in the
area to receive the station's allocated frequency. A transmitter was
to be erected on Knight's Hill, however test transmissions were
delayed due to rain.
WIN-4 commenced transmissions at 5:15 pm. on 18 March 1962. The
first night was met with a number of technical issues, most notably
the complete loss of audio.
ATN-7 refused to sell
programming to the station, leading to an unstable financial situation
which, at its peak left the station with only 42 hours'
In April 1963, Media Securities, owned by Rupert Murdoch, acquired a
controlling interest in the station (his second television station
after NWS-9 Adelaide) and soon appointed a new general manager, Bill
ATN-7 began purchasing several hours of first-run
American television programming from WIN-4, following contractual
arrangements signed by Murdoch. Throughout this period WIN-4
expanded its repeater transmissions to include Moruya, Batemans Bay,
Narooma, Bega and Eden. Local programming and the station's
near-monopoly in the area meant that by 1973, viewership had increased
to occupy 63 percent of the audience.
Murdoch sold the station in 1979 to the head of Paramount Pictures'
international distribution arm, Bruce Gordon, to purchase controlling
interests in capital city stations

1980–1999: Aggregation and expansion
The West Magazine reporting
WIN Television as the second network in
regional Western Australia.
During this period, WIN expanded to include new stations in Victoria,
Queensland, and New South Wales. In 1984, WIN became the first
regional television station to transmit in stereophonic sound.
Close links between
WIN Television and the Nine Network, ensured it
Nine Network affiliation for southern
New South Wales
New South Wales when
aggregation took place in 1989 thus the logo of the station changed to
that of its partner network with the matching nine dots and similar
ident packages. The changes meant that WIN expanded into the rest of
southern New South Wales, launching new stations in Canberra, Orange,
Dubbo and Wagga Wagga, amongst others in 1989, and at the
same time acquiring new facilities in Orange, Wagga and Canberra. It
also provided the network with two additional competitors, The Prime
Network and Capital Television.
In 1990 WIN purchased Queensland station Star TV, with stations in
Rockhampton (RTQ) and the Darling Downs (DDQ and SDQ), shortly before
regional Queensland was to be aggregated. The new station was set to
Network Ten affiliate, however WIN's links with the Nine
Network caused the Nine affiliation to move from QTV, which itself
became affiliated to Ten, all within days before statewide broadcasts
ENT Limited, a Launceston-based company that owned a number of
television and radio stations in regional Victoria and Tasmania, was
bought in 1994. Television Victoria and TasTV were, as a result,
incorporated into the WIN network and subsequently renamed WIN
Television, complete with the nine dots logo of the Nine Network. The
network further expanded to Griffith in 1998, when WIN purchased MTN-9
Griffith and its supplementary station AMN-31 from its local owners.
Although station had previously been part of the Prime Television
network, MTN already had links with WIN and took its feed from the
WIN became regional Western Australia's second commercial television
network on 26 March 1999 after winning rights in 1997. Prior to the
launch of the new station, GWN held a commercial monopoly on the
market. GWN became an affiliate of the Seven Network, while WIN took a
Nine Network and
Network Ten programming. Despite the
Nine Network's traditional ratings dominance throughout most of the
country, GWN has remained the market's most-watched station. The
second ratings survey of 2006 placed
WIN Television with a 34.7%
commercial audience share in prime time, compared to the Golden West
Network with 65.3%, thus being no.2 among regional viewers.
In the same year, WIN purchased two stations in South Australia, SES8
in Mount Gambier and RTS-5a in the
Riverland region. They became known
as WIN SA and until recently featured news bulletins presented from
studios at both stations (bulletins are now presented from the set of
studios in Mount Gambier). In 2002 supplementary licences were granted
Section 38A of the Broadcasting Services Act, allowing the
network to launch additional channels, using the callsigns MGS in
Mount Gambier and LRS in the Riverland, and known as WIN Ten, thus
SES/RTS into the sole Nine affiliate for regional viewers
in SA. This was the case until the affiliation moved to the Seven
Network due to advertising problems with Nine's then owners in 2007.

WIN Television began to introduce digital television soon after it
became available to metropolitan areas in January 2001. Under Section
38A of the Broadcasting Services Act, the network has been able to
introduce, in partnership with other stations, additional digital-only
Network Ten affiliates. These have included Tasmanian Digital
Television, launched in late 2003 in partnership with Southern Cross
Mildura Digital Television in January 2006, with
Prime Television Limited.
On 30 May 2007,
Southern Cross Broadcasting
Southern Cross Broadcasting announced its sale of NWS
WIN Corporation for A$105 million. Similarly,
Sunraysia Television and affiliated to the Nine Network, was
purchased on 8 June 2007, when the station was sold to WIN
Television's parent company, WIN Corporation, for
Despite the station's ownership of Nine Perth, WIN in Western
Ten News Perth, produced for and shown on rival
Perth up until 27 August 2007. Preceding this in June
2007, the network announced their intention to show National Nine News
on WIN WA, due to the rise of yet another joint venture station, Ten
West. This was its 3rd digital only Ten affiliate with both WIN
and GWN taking charge.
A conflict between WIN and its long-time metropolitan counterpart the
Nine Network arose in mid-2007. PBL Media, Nine's parent company,
requested up to 40% of the network's advertising revenue in return for
program supply. WIN's owner,
WIN Corporation rejected this offer,
expecting to pay only 29% (a 3% decrease from the previous contract
and in line with many of the network's competitors, such as Prime
Television and Southern Cross Ten). The network's owner, Bruce
Gordon, subsequently threatened to sever the network's affiliation
after negotiations stagnated, stating that his previous position at
Paramount Pictures Corporation meant he could program the network
independently. On 16 August 2007
WIN Television dropped key Nine
Network programs from its daytime television schedule, including
Mornings with Kerri-Anne
Mornings with Kerri-Anne and National Nine News: Morning Edition.
The end result was that WIN SA began to change affiliation from Nine
Seven Network and the change was announced on 4 September 2007,
for the network's eastern South Australian stations in Mount Gambier
and the Riverland. The new program schedule is a mixture of Seven and
WIN programming and commenced broadcasting on 1 October 2007. Two
years later, WIN officially relaunched its
Nine Network service with
the new channel, now known as WIN SA, carrying NWS from Adelaide and
all Nine News programs but with local advertisements inserted to serve

GEM on channel 80 in Southern NSW, Regional Victoria,
On 1 May 2012 WIN began transmission of an SD digital infomercial
channel, Gold on channel 84. The second infomercial channel, Gold2
began on 13 July 2013 as a five-hour timeshift of Gold.
Following Nine's launch of
9Life on 26 November 2015 and WIN's
promises of following suit, WIN began broadcasting a "coming soon"
test pattern on channels 85 and 86 on 10 February 2016 stating that
they will revive
WIN HD and carry
9Life from the
Nine Network from 1
March 2016. As a result, their channel listing was reshuffled to
match to Nine's metropolitan with
9Gem on channel 82,
9Go! on channel
9Life on channel 84, Extra on channel 85 and Gold on channel 86.
2016–present: A new direction
After Nine launched its new online catch-up video on demand and live
9Now on 27 January 2016, WIN filed a lawsuit against
Nine, claiming that live streaming into regional areas breaches their
affiliation agreement. Justice Hammerschlag of the NSW Supreme
Court dismissed the case on 28 April 2016, citing that "live streaming
is not broadcasting within the meaning of the PSA (program supply
agreement), and that Nine is under no express or implied obligation
not to do it."
Following WIN's defeat in the
9Now lawsuit, Nine announced it had
signed a new $500 million affiliation deal with Network Ten's main
affiliate Southern Cross Austereo. This saw Southern Cross Austereo's
stations in Southern NSW, the ACT, and regional areas in Victoria and
Queensland switch to Nine affiliation on 1 July 2016. With that
announcement, WIN was effectively stripped of its 27-year partnership
with Nine. In response, WIN entered affiliation talks with Network
Ten, in which Gordon held a significant stake, reaching a
final agreement on 23 May 2016. Under the new agreement, beginning 1
July 2016, WIN would carry Ten programming into regional Queensland,
Southern NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia
and the Australian Capital Territory. Deals to supply Nine
programming to South Australia, and Griffith were secured on 29 June
2016, a day later
Tasmania were secured as well. A supply deal

West Digital Television
West Digital Television was not
secured before the 1 July 2016 deadline, but a deal was later
finalised on 2 July 2016 with programming resuming that night.
According to the channel changes, Ten's channel listing was reshuffled
with ONE on channel 81, ELEVEN on Channel 82,
TVSN on channel 84 and
Gold on channel 85.
In late January 2017, it was announced that WIN and Southern Cross
Austereo had commenced negotiations over the sale of SCA's Ten
NRN in Northern NSW in exchange for WIN's Wollongong
radio station i98FM. This deal would have given SCA access to
Wollongong radio market and allowed WIN to expand into the
Northern NSW market for the first time, giving it coverage across all
regional eastern Australian markets. Southern Cross later withdrew
from negotiations on 20 February 2017 with no explanation
given. However, WIN and Southern Cross later finalised an
agreement on 28 March 2017 where they would sell
NRN to WIN for a
total of $55 million, with the sale taking effect on 31
NRN was maintained as Ten Northern NSW until playout
and transmission are transferred to WIN on 1 September 2017, at that
point the station adopted the WIN branding. The channel numbers
will also be reshuffled to align with WIN's other stations, but as
NBN Television holds the 8-numbered digital channels in
northern NSW, NRN's digital channels will remain on the 5-numbered
