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, 10play and SBS On Demand, 9Now lets you go back and watch the last 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.

Plus, you also get complete boxsets for some series, great if you're in the mood for a binge-watch. And since 9Now streams over the Internet, you can watch content 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.

Do I need to sign up for 9Now?

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.

All of Nine's channels are available to stream live on 9Now. GEM serves up general entertainment ("GEM" stands for General Entertainment and Movies). GO! is skewed towards a more youthful audience, 9Life focuses on reality and lifestyle programs and 9Rush delivers mostly adventure reality programming. Finally, Nine itself includes a variety of news and sports coverage in addition to bigger shows like Married at First Sight, LEGO Masters and Celebrity Apprentice.

On 9Now, you can watch a variety of genres, from drama to reality. Popular titles include The Thing About Pam, Resident Alien, Law & Order: SVU, Survivor US, Love Island UK, La Brea, Travel Guides and more.

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) and you can browse the entire library before signing up.

Speaking of sport, you can stream selected NRL games each week, including the State of Origin, live and on demand on 9Now.

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 2 main options. For Apple users, the 9Now iOS app is supported by iPhones and iPads running iOS 12.0+, while for Android users, the 9Now Android app requires an Android phone or tablet running Android 5+.

Accessing 9Now on your computer is as simple as loading up the website with a supported browser – Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Edge.

The 9Now app also works on Telstra TV, Fetch, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, FreeviewPlus, Apple TV 4, PlayStation 4 and Samsung, Android and LG smart TVs. Older versions of Apple TV can access 9Now through AirPlay.

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. It’s also worth mentioning that if you have a slow Internet connection, 9Now will stream your program at a lower quality and consume less of your download limit.

Watching an on-demand program can burn from 0.2GB/hour in low resolution (270p) to 1.2GB/hour in high resolution (720p). Live streaming will consume from 0.2GB/hour in low resolution to 1.8GB/hour in high resolution.

For a smooth streaming experience on-the-go, Nine recommends a minimum 2GB mobile data plan with a 3G/4G-connected device.

    I am very happy to see Days of Our Lives back on tv and showing on 9Now, however having been off air in Australia for several years the current episodes that are airing are very confusing. Is 9Now going to start back from when the show went off air so we can catch-up on all the episodes we missed and be able to understand the current shows.

      Hi Carla,

      Thanks for getting in touch! Given that 9Now is now on streaming service, you can watch Days Of Our Lives from the last episode you watch and catch up on the show. Hope this helps!

      Best,
      Nikki

      Hi Brian,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      There is no information on Manifest’s Season 2 release date in Australia yet. There are news articles online saying it will be aired on the first quarter of this year in US however, there’s no confirmed information on the official release date yet in both countries.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Charisse
