Top 20 Pay TV Programs


oztam Top 20 Pay TV Programs

Accurate ratings figures are just as important to pay TV providers as they are to the big free to air networks, and OzTAM’s people meter technology is just as capable of collecting viewer numbers on those platforms – with the dominant one being, of course, Foxtel.

With dozens of channels on offer, Foxtel’s massive viewership is divided between many different channels at different times – and because the set top box that receives the service also acts as a digital video recorder, much of Foxtel’s viewership is done time-shifted (which is where the Consolidated 28 ratings come in).

Top 20 Shows on Subscription TV

This list of the top 20 subscription TV programs, though, is important as a measure of how many people are directly engaging with shows, programs and live sporting events as they happen. As a result, it often has shows from channels largely watched live – such as Sky News or the general entertainment channel FOX8 – dominating the list.

The viewer numbers here only reflect those who watched the shows live, or time-shifted by a maximum of two hours. Those who recorded the show to watch later are counted in the consolidated 7-day and 28-day ratings.

The viewer figures are compiled from data collected over a full 24-hour period, rather than just the evening peak viewing times. While all available pay TV platforms are included, streaming platforms are not – they are instead rated under their own category.
