Multiview’s panel of 10,000 homes is Australia’s biggest TV audience measurement panel.


Being engineered from the ground up, the Multiview panel has correct proportions of tier, set-top-box type, number of set-top-boxes as well as geographic representation.


Multiview’s return-path-data methodology assures less respondent burden which increases the representativeness of the panel. The key benefit is a high quality sample ensuring that upscale, more technologically complex and younger homes are in correct proportion to the Subscription TV population.

Multiview benefits the whole Subscription TV industry. From a platform perspective Multiview delivers insights impacting content decisions and subscriber marketing.

Multiview’s highly granular data has enabled FOXTEL to differentiate the performance of their SD and HD channels for the first time ever. Using Multiview data, FOXTEL identified an opportunity to boost the viewing of their HD channels.

These Multiview insights informed FOXTEL’s strategic decision to swap the position of each HD channel with its SD simulcast channel on the electronic programme guide. This resulted in the HD channels audiences doubling, with the vast majority of the HD simulcast viewing now taking place on the HD channel.
