Best International Shows are not on Free to Air

All the shows battling it out for Best New International Show in the TV Tonight Awards can be found on either Netflix & Foxtel -but there are mixed views on which was best for 2016.

According to current polling, the most-popular new international show on Free to Air barely scrapes into the top 10.

The trend reflects that TV networks have been abandoning their US output deals in favour of local content.

Voting for the annual reader awards has been open for a week.

By contrast the Best New Australian Show is dominated by Free to Air titles, although there are Pay TV and Streaming titles pulling votes too.

Best Aussie Drama is showing a clear front-runner, along with Light Entertainment & Reality, but it’s neck and neck in the Comedy stakes. It’s still too tight for Favourite Male, but a Favourite Female now has her nose out in front.

Meanwhile The Story of the Year and Biggest Blunder of the Year look set to recognise two different events, rather than the same.
