Nobody said the path to falling in love was easy – but our beautiful Aussie islanders will find a way when Love Island Australia premieres Monday, October 11, at 8.45pm after The Block on Channel 9 and 9Now.

Our tanned, trim, and toned islanders are packed and ready to find “the one” in our Love Island Australia villa – an oasis of fun under the sun in Byron Bay’s hinterland.

The Islanders must couple up, stay together, and win over the hearts of the public, all while surviving the temptations of beautiful bombshells entering the villa.

The world-renowned reality TV phenomenon will be hosted by Sophie Monk alongside new addition, comedian Stephen Mullan, as the narrator, and Abbie Chatfield as host of Afterparty each Thursday night.

Australia’s Leading Publisher

Nine’s Publishing division

Nine’s Publishing division includes metro media - The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Australian Financial Review, newspaper inserted magazines such as Sunday Life, Good Weekend, and Traveller and Nine’s other Digital Publishing titles including Pedestrian Group, CarAdvice/Drive and nine.com.au.

Nine's dedicated branded content team within Powered creates content that allows the client to communicate to a target audience in an authentic way. The varied offerings across digital and print fall under the umbrella of native and advertorial and can include articles, immersives and video-led content.

Native Example


Native content creates an environment for a client to integrate seamlessly within the Nine brand.

The tone and style more closely aligns to the selected publication and it receives higher engagement and dwell time as a result. Minimal client integration is allowed in this product.



Advertorial is brand-focused content that builds awareness – the client's product or brand message is prominent within the copy and imagery.

The client has greater control of its message, while still reflecting the tone and style of the publication.

Celebrating the Australian Financial Review at 70

The Financial Review will use its 70th year to elevate its leadership role as Australia emerges from the global pandemic to help drive the next decade of business-led prosperity and opportunity.

To celebrate the Platinum year, there are a number of new commercial initiatives that aim to inform, invest and inspire readers, including the below:

The Editors Forum: Launch of a never before seen series of exclusive editorially-led round table featuring Australia’s most senior business leaders.

Podcasts are here: The AFR is launching 3 new podcast concepts aimed at Australia's leading entrepreneurs, financially passionate and savvy audience. Each concept will kick off with an 8-part series of 20minute episodes.

Each initiative has integrated opportunities for our partners to join the conversation with sponsorships, content and advertising.




To mark The Australian Financial Review's 70-year heritage, a customised and bespoke magazine, PLATINUM 70 was published today, Friday August 20, celebrating the anniversary. This unique magazine features exclusive interviews, showcases bespoke ads, paper tricks and advertorials, associated event sponsorship and upcoming podcasts.

To celebrate the AFR Platinum year, a number of special commercial initiatives aim to inform, invest and inspire readers.


"The proposition for Platinum 70 Magazine was to use our anniversary as an occasion to create a bespoke magazine, one filled with the biggest names of interest to our subscribers. The end result is a mix of features, profiles and thought-starters that is classic Financial Review.

We started with a completely blank sheet of paper; everything from the editorial mix through to the design - right down to the fonts - was customised for this issue. And we basically drew up a list of dream profile candidates. That so many of them said 'yes' speaks to the strength of this masthead."

Matt Drummond, Editor

Why local content, diversity and live sport should be plan A, plan B and plan C for brands

Powered Unpacked

Why local content, diversity and live sport should be plan A, plan B and plan C for brands


Programming that connects

In a shifting, consolidating landscape, programming that connects with Australians wherever they are represents the closest thing to a sure bet for brands. The same is true for publishers.

“Investing in Australian content that reflects the stories of Australians back to our audience, that’s our point of difference,” says Hamish Turner, Nine's Director of Programming. “Live audience, audience at scale that consumes content in a temporal manner, and Australian stories, they are the four big things for us – and that won’t change.”

Nine’s slate for the rest of the year reflects that commitment – returning favourites such as The Block and Australian Ninja Warrior, and five newly commissioned shows that will bridge this year into next. All different, but “all very ‘integratable’,” says Turner, giving brands further avenues to explore, and “diversity utility”. Which may prove useful in a world likely to be disrupted by Covid for some time yet.

Watch episode four above or stream below:

Diversity of slate

The delayed Australian Open is a case in point. “That forced us into being quite fluid through that period,” says Turner, which is where Nine’s pandemic focus on “utility of schedule” came into effect.

“What we meant by that is having pieces in the schedule that we could pick up and pull out, and having a real diverse mix of shows, so that you went from Married at First Sight into Lego Masters,” says Turner.

“So the show that created a lot of noise, a lot of controversy, into a show that is much loved by families. We've then gone into Celebrity Apprentice, which hasn't been on our screens for a long time, but again, it provides a very different style of show for our audience,” he adds.

“So that was that ‘diversity utility’, having the confidence that we could pull brands out and put them in if we needed to.” 

Reality bites

In the end, the delayed Australian Open contributed to a “phenomenal start to the year,” says Turner. Meanwhile, MAFS smashed expectations across platforms, reaching audience numbers on the 9Now platform that would put many linear shows to shame.

“It is an absolute phenomenon,” says Turner. “There is nothing else that is actually reachingor delivering on the same level as Married at First Sight.”

While MAFS can divide opinion, that’s a true reflection of Australian society and daily life, suggests Turner. “It's quite confronting. And I think that's what actually talks to that audience. You don't know what's coming next. And the audience came in droves.”

Sport: reach everybody

That level of unpredictably and drama is perhaps trumped only by live sport – the backbone of Australian society and a guaranteed engagement delivery mechanism for advertisers.

Nine, Nine Now and Stan Sport are working closely with the sporting codes to ensure the broadest possible audiences – with audience growth across platforms a cornerstone of the plan.

“Sport is a total TV play,” says Turner, pointing to the current French Open as a template for Nine’s approach.

“There’s linear, everything is available on Stan Sport ad free, but you can also get that live linear experience on 9Now. For us, and for brands, it’s about engaging audiences across multiple platforms,” he adds.

Meanwhile, the sports codes, clubs and brands know they need to be free-to-air – or suffer.

“We've seen sporting codes that have gone behind paywalls, and it's been to the detriment of those sports,” says Turner.

“That ability to be in the free space, to connect to all Australians, is so fundamental in terms of driving success for those brands moving forward,” he adds.

“Nine is in a unique position whereby we can offer that cross-platform opportunity to brands. We’re going into it together to grow brands, to grow the codes and grow audiences.”

Your call

For brands looking to connect with Australians through uniquely Australian content, that approach guarantees diversity of audience as well as diversity of utility.

Advertisers interested in getting the inside track on Nine’s five newly commissioned shows, or to understand cross screen opportunities around The Block, Australian Ninja Warrior, Beauty and The Geek, and Parental Guidance, should “pick up the phone,” suggests Turner.

Sometimes a direct call to action is the most effective.
