Streaming on 9Jumpin
Streaming allows you to watch your shows without having to wait. While in days past you had to wait for a large file to download to your hard drive before you could watch a video, streaming lets you watch your video file as the data is transferred - ie, in real time. With 9Jumpin, you can stream Nine programs to your PC, tablet or smartphone with ease.
Just like the free-to-air Nine Network, 9Jumpin offers a wide variety of Australian, American and British programs for viewers. There are sitcoms, dramas, reality shows, lifestyle programs, entertainment shows and much more. Some of the popular programs you can watch include:
You can watch the latest episodes of shows currently screening, or you can catch up on some of your old favourites. As an example, there’s a massive 225 episodes of McLeod’s Daughters available for viewing. You can search for shows in your favourite genre - sport, comedy and travel are just a few of the options - or browse recently added or soon to expire programs.
The best part about 9Jumpin is that, just like the catch-up TV services offered by other free-to-air television networks in Australia, its entirely free to use. There are no subscription fees and you don’t have to sign up for an account - just click on a video and away you go. However, keep in mind that you will have to sit through some advertisements in order to watch your shows.

When are shows put on 9Jumpin.com.au?
You’ll need to wait for your show to air on TV before it will be added to the website, remembering that some shows will air a few a few hour later in different parts of the country. As a general rule, shows will be loaded by midday on the day following when they air on TV. How long they’ll then stay on the site varies, but expiry dates are clearly listed for all programs.
What technical requirements will my computer need to meet to let me watch a video?
You’ll need an up-to-date Internet browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will all work fine) and the latest version of Flash installed on your PC. Another crucial component is a decent broadband internet connection - this will ensure your videos load quickly and screen without interruption.
How much of my download limit will I use when I watch a video?
Watching a 22-minute show (The Big Bang Theory for example) will use approximately 300MB of data, while a 42-minute program (with ads, this would screen for an hour on free-to-air TV) will use roughly 600MB. Check with your ISP to make sure you won’t exceed your monthly download limit. It’s also worth mentioning that if you have a slow internet connection, 9Jumpin will stream your program at a lower quality and therefore consume less of your download limit.
Why aren’t all the shows from Nine, GEM and GO! on 9Jumpin?
