Nine Confirms Plan To Live Stream Its TV Channels Online

2016 is going to be a busy week for Australian TV online: Channel Nine has joined the fray, confirming that it will stream its channels for free.

As previously reported, Nine has confirmed plans to stream all of its channels online, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.

Nine will kick off its online broadcast from 2016, and joins Channel 7 and SBS's new online food network as new 24-hour online free-to-air broadcasters.

Nine will rebrand its Jump In catch-up service to 9Now, which will be the new home of its live-streaming service. The service will be compatible with tablet, smartphone and desktop operating systems.

9Now will feature the same advertising as its terrestrial broadcast, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, but that may change over time to a more "personalised" experience. [SMH]
