Just seen the viewer stats for the rugby last night. As you know it was broadcast on Sky Sports, TV One, TV3 and Maori TV. Each broadcaster tends to only trumpet their own viewers, but let’s add all the individual figures up. This is the percentage of all adults and children (only excludes under five year olds) watching each channel, and the approx number of viewers:
- TV One 17.0%, 680,000
- Sky Sports 16.7%, 668,000
- TV3 10.0%, 400,000
- Maori TV 6.8%, 272,000
That adds up to 50.5% of New Zealanders or 2,020,000 Kiwis who watched the semi-final. One can only wonder what the final will get?
Which other “programmes” have had 2 million viewers?Tags: Rugby World Cup
