Seven West Media today showcased its 2018 plans at an event in Melbourne branded Seven West Media 2018 Allfront.
The Seven Network is spending more on content than it ever has in a single year – that includes of course its massive investment in sports rights.
Below are some of the details about its plans from the release which accompanied its Melbourne Allfronts Event:
The Seven Network – Australia’s most-watched broadcast television platform – today unveiled its plans for development across all screens over the coming twelve months.
Seven is number one across the current television year. This is Seven’s twelfth consecutive year of leadership in primetime. Seven is also number one for news and across breakfast and morning television.
Seven will build on this leadership with the commissioning of major new franchises and television events, a string of renewals for major hit franchises and dramas and a portfolio of major sports events that will drive its audience delivery across 2018.
Commenting, Tim Worner, Seven West Media’s Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, said: “We are delivering compelling content wherever and whenever our audience wants it. We will have more events – live across sports and our entertainment programming. We are growing the content we originate and produce. And, we are committed to ensuring that in 2018, more Australians will watch Seven than anyone else.”
Commenting, Kurt Burnette, Seven West Media’s Chief Revenue Officer, said: “Our business is about securing and creating the biggest audiences and delivering those audiences across every screen to consumers and advertisers through a seamless and easy connection. 2018 is the culmination of a long term and continuous strategic plan on creating the optimum combination of content, technology and innovation to continue to deliver results for our partners.”
