When one acts it doesn’t take long for the other to follow…
Just days after Seven announced that it would be broadcasting this Saturday’s AFL Grand Final in high definition on 7mate, the Nine Network has followed with an announcement today that it will be broadcasting this Sunday’s NRL Grand Final on its high definition channel Gem as well as in standard definition on Nine.
Up until today Nine had only committed to showing the Grand Final in high definition on Gem in Perth, more for reasons of scheduling due to the time difference to the eastern states and to avoid bumping Nine’s regular programming from the main channel.
This Sunday’s Grand Final is between the Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys.
