Seven unveils line-up of exclusive content coming to 7plus

The Seven Network has unveiled a line-up of exclusive content and new shows coming to 7plus this summer, on 15 January 2023.

7plus’ supersized summer schedule will offer audiences a bigger and deeper selection of entertainment shows, reality programs, drama series and new FAST (free ad-supported streaming TV) channels.

Seven will also launch the new channel, 7Bravo, which along with Seven’s partnership with NBCUniversal, to offer quality reality, entertainment and true crime content to Seven and 7plus, including the unscripted TV franchises Real Housewives, Below Deck and Million Dollar Listing.

New FAST channels will offer viewers more to explore on 7plus this summer, with an exclusive channel featuring hand-picked classic episodes of Home and Away, now live. Viewers can relive the most memorable births, deaths, marriages and tragedies from Summer Bay over the past 35 years, with the nostalgic episodes available on-demand on 7plus and scheduled chronologically on the Home and Away Classics FAST channel.

Almost half of all commercial BVOD streaming in Australia happens on 7plus and so far this year, 7plus has streamed over 11.7 billion minutes of content – 144% more than the third-placed commercial network’s BVOD service.

Seven West Media chief digital officer, Gereurd Roberts, said: “7plus is fully loaded this summer – full of hit entertainment shows, full of bingeable series, full of enticing drama, and full of must-watch reality.

“We are always looking at ways to enhance our content and viewing experience, and this summer we’re expanding our programming catalogue with over 2,000 extra hours of content – and that doesn’t even take into account the additional NBCU and 7Bravo programming coming in January.

“7plus has had another remarkable year, with live streaming in 2022 up 40% year-on-year and total BVOD viewing up 16%, as audiences increasingly come to 7plus to watch our compelling content,” he said.

Seven West Media national sales director of digital, Nicole Bence, said: “This summer, 7plus is a one-stop shop for the best Seven content alongside an extensive library of exclusive and classic programming that connects with younger audiences. There’s something for everyone and 7plus offers advertisers incredible levels of personalisation, exciting new shoppable solutions and new data-driven FAST channels.

“For our clients and agency partners, 7plus’ industry-leading user experience – coupled with our powerful first-party data insights from 7REDiQ – provides a powerful way to align their brands alongside the vast library 7plus premium content this summer and connect with their target audience in the most impactful and targeted way.

Joining 7plus’ more than 50 FAST channels this summer will be Crazy In Love, a channel bringing reality fans a curated schedule of hit shows including Back with the Ex, First Dates Australia, Extreme Weddings, The Single Wives and Yummy Mummies.

The streaming line-up on 7plus will see viewers be able to binge on full series of programs, including all seasons of 9-1-1 and 9-1-1-Lonestar, plus seasons of Brothers & Sisters, Ghost Whisperer, Private Practice, Boston Legal, Prison Break and Scandal.
