The Hobart Mercury on how WIN’s 30-year affiliation with Channel Nine comes to an end on Thursday, potentially replacing shows like 60 Minutes and The Voice with content from Channel 10.

“And while Tasmanian television broadcaster TDT said it remained confident a deal could be struck with Nine by Thursday, the Sydney-based entertainment giant admitted Tasmanian viewers may have to rely in the short term on streaming content via the 9 Now app.

WIN is scheduled to air the The Footy Show for the last time ­tomorrow night, and Tasmanian fans of the ratings winner remain in the dark about if and when the Sam Newman-hosted hit will return.”
