Nine has secured Free to Air NRL broadcast rights for the 2018 to 2022 seasons at a cost of $185m per year, including contra.
Nine has confirmed exclusive Free-to-Air rights to broadcast 4 premium live games a week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, as well as the Finals series, State of Origin and other special event matches.
The deal includes all free streaming rights for these games and more than doubles live coverage to over 270 hours per season.
The $185m fee will be reduced if the NRL announces pay simulcast rights for certain games.
David Gyngell, CEO of NEC, said: “Rugby League is part of Nine’s DNA. This is a transformational outcome for supporters, Rugby League and Nine, enabling viewers to see the best of the NRL, live and free, 4 days per week, anywhere, on any device.
“As the audience for television fragments, the value and marketing power of free, live premium sport across multiple media cannot be underestimated.”
Other changes see NRL played over 25 instead of 26 rounds, the second match of State of Origin played on Sundays, and international rugby to be played after NRL season.
NRL CEO Dave Smith said the NRL would regain control of the season schedule.
“We will be able to schedule the best games when fans want to see them – and ensure all clubs receive the coverage they deserve on free to air television,” he said.
Negotiations with other platforms is continuing.
“By 2018, the digital world will be very different and we want to be in the best possible position to take advantage of any changes,” he said.
“So negotiations with the pay tv and digital providers will continue and, again, our focus will be on ensuring the most widespread coverage on whatever platform fans choose to watch rugby league.”

The Vogue Australia September issue cover shows one Aussie icon, Nicole Kidman, in front of another Aussie icon, Uluru. The issue and shoot celebrates the 30th anniversary of the handing back of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to its traditional owners, the Anangu people, by the Australian government.
The shoot and feature focuses on the Anangu women and Australia's spiritual heartland. Vogue editor-in-chief Edwina McCann said the magazine hoped the feature would encourage tourists to visit the Northern Territory and the national park. Nicole also said after the shoot, "'People always ask me where they should go in Australia: now I'm going to say Uluru." She added, "I''m enraptured by it. I've always been drawn to the landscape, and I do think there's something . . . the energy and the light . . . it's just a very, very magical, special place."
Nicole's involvement was also linked to her role as a UN Women goodwill ambassador, which she has been for almost a decade. She is passionate about advancing women’s rights and empowerment, and met with the women of the local Mutitjulu community. "The constant need is to keep educating," said Nicole.
Of the printed photographs, Nicole said, "The colours cannot be captured, even in a photograph," which just makes us more excited to visit Uluru — because the photos already look amazing!
Tourism Australia Managing Director John O'Sullivan said he hopes the shoot will be viewed by millions. "It's fabulous exposure for Uluru and for great inspiration for a Northern Territory holiday."

What would Game of Thrones look like with Sesame Street as its theme song?
Probably something like this…
One man learned a very valuable lesson after cheating on his girlfriend: If you're going to be unfaithful, don't leave your appendages vulnerable to a fiery attack.
After finding out that her man had slept with her co-worker, an unknown woman decided to get some payback - against the very body part he had strayed with.
While he was sleeping, she snuck up on him, with a camera running, and set the underwear he was wearing on fire.
This is pretty cool. WB Games teamed up with YouTuber devinsupertramp to promote an upcoming 'Max' game.
Mad Max Fury Road raced into theatres earlier this year to positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. The success of the film has lead to merchandising, namely tie-in comics and a new video game.
WB Games and Avalanche Studios teamed up on the upcoming game Mad Max. If the marketing hasn’t done anything for you, then check out the latest promo by YouTuber devinsupertramp. The studio brought Assassin’s Creed 4 to life at Comic-Con with a parkour video. Now they hit the open road to recreate a Mad Max car chase using go-karts, paintball guns, and high production value.

THEY are the new Wallabies’ foreign intelligence service and they’re willing to divulge all secrets to help secure World Cup glory.
An unprecedented four players in Michael Cheika’s World Cup squad named on Friday spent the majority of 2015 playing in Europe: Matt Giteau, Drew Mitchell, Dean Mumm and Kane Douglas.
At the start of the year none would have been considering a recall but amendments to Wallabies’ eligibility laws by the ARU mid-year saw all that change.
Giteau and Mitchell earned selection while based overseas via the new 60-Test criteria, and Mumm and Douglas both qualified courtesy of them signing on to play Super Rugby in 2016.
The quartet have not only become members of the Webb Ellis Cup campaign, but due to their collective IP on European rugby and World Cup rivals, extremely valuable squad members.
Giteau and Mitchell (Toulon, France), Mumm (Exeter, England) and Douglas (Leinster, Ireland) have been immersed in northern hemisphere rugby for the majority of this World Cup cycle.
They possess insight, advice and even trade secrets of Australia’s World Cup pool rivals, even on individual player basis.
Mumm’s knowledge of English set-piece tradecraft will be priceless, and from playing at multicultural Toulon, Giteau and Mitchell have teammates from many rival nations. The duo know well the art of winning in Europe, too, having helped claim the European Cup several times in massive finals.
But it is not just the players. Cheika’s coaching career has been mostly in Europe (Leinster, Stade Francais), and so too Argentinian scrum coach Mario Ledesma, who played and coached in France until last year.
It is the type of World Cup advantage never possessed by Australia before.
“You understand, most importantly, the mentality of how they go about things and the way they like to play,” Mumm said.
“You can particularly understand that mentality from a set-piece point of view and how important it is. As well as Cheik and Mario, who have that European experience as well.
“You start to build that into the way you train and you realise that set-piece is such a huge element in Test football, but even more so in the north and to get into that mentality of applying pressure.”
Mumm was so highly regarded as a lock at Exeter he was named as captain of the UK Premiership’s Team of the 2014-15 season. He has spent the last three years poring over line out footage of English Test rivals like Tom Wood, Geoff Parling, Chris Robshaw and Dave Atwood.

Windows 95 launched 20 years ago today to the beat of "Start Me Up" by the Rolling Stones. It became the theme tune of a massive launch that saw thousands of people lining up at midnight to purchase a copy of Windows 95 on a CD-ROM. Microsoft spent millions on Windows 95 advertising, and "Start Me Up" featured in most TV commercials at the time. Flash forward 20 years, and Microsoft is giving the song away today to commemorate the launch of Windows 95. If it was good enough to make former CEOs Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates dance (terribly) on stage 20 years ago, it's good enough for your music collection.
Check out the Windows 95 instruction video featuring Jennifer Aniston & Matthew Perry.

We've been given a glimpse of the new Chisel track from brand new album 'The Perfect Crime'. Due for release on Friday the 2nd of October, The Perfect Crime will be Chisel's eighth studio album, bringing our first new taste of the iconic band's music since 2012's No Plans.
The Perfect Crime is probably the most rock & roll album that we’ve ever done," said Cold Chisel songwriter Don Walker.
The release of the new album coincides with Chisel's massive One Last Stand tour which has already announced a huge string of dates across the country and sees the band at Darwin’s Garden’s Ampitheatre on Tuesday Nov. 10.
Now they've decided to give the fans just that little bit more to make the tour something special, announcing that Grinspoon will be joining them onstage for seven shows, including Darwin, reuniting after their 'indefinite hiatus'.
“To say we are excited to be supporting Cold Chisel is an understatement,” said Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson

These terrifying, snarling, bloodied-teeth baring dogs are very real.
But there’s no need to panic – They’re just modelling what might be the greatest dog muzzle that we’ve ever seen.
Yep, this muzzle is a real thing – and it means that your dog can look extra scary if you’re slightly afraid to walk it at night.
It will probably freak out your neighbour’s young kids and scar them for life…but hey….it’s funny.
If you love movies, you’ll delight in seeing some of your favourite stars on-screen before they made it big.
The audiocassette tape is not dead. In fact, one cassette maker says it has had its best year since it opened in 1969.
“You can characterize our operating model as stubbornness and stupidity. We were too stubborn to quit,” said National Audio Company President Steve Stepp.
NAC is the largest and one of the few remaining manufacturers of audiocassettes in the U.S. The profitable company produced more than 10 million tapes in 2014 and sales are up 20 percent this year.
“Probably the thing that has really enlarged our business at a faster phase than anything is the retro movement,” Stepp said. "There's the nostalgia of holding the audio cassette in your hand.” NAC has deals with major record labels like Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group as well as a number of small contracts with indie bands. About 70 percent of the company’s sales are from music cassettes while the rest are blank cassettes.
“There was a drive from the independent bands to get that warm analog sound again, and it just continued to grow and grow,” said NAC Production Manager Susie Brown.
The company still uses machines built in the 1970s in its production lines.
