Foxtel has now released Timeshifted data for the premiere episode which tallies a cumulative average audience of 631,000 viewers across its various broadcasts.
The May 1st premiere screened simultaneously on SoHo, FOX8 and 111HITS, as well as +2 channels and enjoyed replays across the week.
Multiple replays and Timeshifted data makes it harder to draw direct comparisons with previous Foxtel highlights such as Love My Way and Australia’s Next Top Model, but it’s clear the show has attracted good buzz and excellent numbers.
The first ep also had more than 22,000 views on Foxtel Go, Foxtel On Demand, on the SoHo website and youtube.
Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said: “Wentworth is a must-watch new drama series, and this terrific result reflects the changing viewing habits of Australians in 2013. Our subscribers appreciate Foxtel’s innovative multi-play programming strategy giving them the freedom to choose when they watch, and how they watch with services such as Foxtel iQ and Foxtel Go.”
Tomorrow night’s episode focusses on the story of Liz Birdsworth (Celia Ireland) with Anne Charleston, Annie Jones and Carla Bonner at 8:30pm on SoHo.
