9Now quick facts
What is 9Now? A catch-up and on-demand streaming service for TV shows broadcast on the Nine network.
Where can I watch 9Now? The 9Now app is available on mobile devices, streaming devices like Apple TV and Google Chromecast as well as many smart TVs.
Does 9Now cost anything? No, but you will need to create a free Nine account before you can start streaming.
Like ABC iView, 7Plus, TENPlay and SBS On Demand, 9Now lets you go back and watch the last few episodes of all of its featured programming whenever you want, perfect for those times when life gets in the way of your regular night's viewing. And since 9Now streams over the Internet, you can watch it wherever you have a solid network connection. Streaming the latest episode of Young Sheldon on the train ride into work makes the morning commute a lot less boring.

All of Nine's channels are available to stream live on 9Now. GEM serves up general entertainment ("GEM" stands for General Entertainment and Movies), featuring shows like Ellen, Law & Order: SVU, and Midsomer Murders. GO! is skewed towards a more youthful audience, with shows like Love Island, Survivor US, and The Big Bang Theory. Life focuses on reality and lifestyle programs such as The Bachelorette US and Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian. Nine itself includes a variety of news and sports coverage in addition to bigger shows like The Voice and Married at First Sight.
In addition to watching the latest episodes of current TV shows, you can also catch up on some old favourites. For example, all 68 episodes of Sea Patrol are currently available for viewing. You can search for shows in your favourite genre (sport, comedy and travel are just a few of the options) or you can browse recently-added or soon-to-expire programs.
For catch-up TV, you’ll need to wait until a show has aired on TV before it appears on 9Now. Because some shows air a few hours later in different parts of the country, a good general rule is that an episode will be up by midday on the day following its airing. How long it'll stay available on the catch-up service varies from show to show, but you can find each episode's expiry date clearly listed below its description.
What devices are compatible with 9Now?
Since 9Now streams over the Internet rather than through a traditional over-the-air broadcast, you can tune in through a wide range of Internet-enabled devices.
If you want to watch 9Now content on-the-go, you have two main options. For Apple users, the 9Now iOS app is supported by iPhones, iPods and iPads running iOS 9.0+, while for Android users, the 9Now Android app requires an Android phone or tablet running Android 4.4+.
Do I need to sign up for 9Now?
Unlike some other catch-up services, 9Now requires you to register a Nine account in order to watch live and catch-up TV. Creating the account is free, as is watching everything on offer. Nine uses the data you provide to offer you personalised content recommendations and targeted ads based on your age and gender. Thankfully, you won't receive any marketing emails unless you opt-in for them.
How much data does 9Now use?
As with all streaming services, watching TV shows and movies through 9Now counts against your Internet plan's monthly data cap. Watching a 22-minute show such as The Big Bang Theory in Standard Definition (SD) will use approximately 300MB of data, while a 42-minute program like Doctor Doctor will use roughly 600MB. High Definition (HD) streaming ups this to approximately 500MB and 1GB respectively. It’s also worth mentioning that if you have a slow Internet connection, 9Now will stream your program at a lower quality and therefore consume less of your download limit.
For a smooth streaming experience on-the-go, Nine recommends a minimum 2GB mobile data plan with a 3G/4G-connected device.
