Nine has launched its vision for the NRL in 2020 promising an expanded and enhanced cross-platform presence for its television, radio, digital and publishing assets under the vision of “Your Footy, Your Way.”

“In 2020, Nine will continue to support the women’s game as it goes from strength to strength, and as part of a broader women’s sport opportunity we are bringing it to market across all of Nine’s assets.”

Nine will also continue to innovate in terms of camera coverage with new crossbar cam and corner post cam and is also working in conjunction with the NRL and the Rugby League Players Association on the introduction of player microphones.

“With the aid of crossbar cam and corner post cam and the new player mics that we will be trialling in 2020, in partnership with NRL and NRL players association, we will give our viewers a new perspective on the game they love to follow.”
