Well, it seems that the following change took effect on the 1st July 2021. You can now view your favourite Channel 9 programs back on the WIN channels.
I found the following article and think it will be of interest to TV viewers on the Sunshine Coast. It means that in the future the Channel 9 Programs will return to being viewed on the WIN channels 8, 80, 88. No timetable as to when this will occur but I will post when we get the date.
Channel Nine Programs To Return To WIN In New Affiliate Deal.
