Though our boxes are already filled with US television shows, more are set to air this year.
All the major Australian TV networks have confirmed they will be rushing many of their US content straight to Aussie screens.
Shows such as The Amazing Race, Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon A Time, CSI, The Big Bang Theory, The Good Wife and more will be fast tracked to Australian airtime most likely in an effort to keep interests high and dampen download or streaming of television shows.
A growing trend of downloading or streaming television shows in Australia is exacerbated by stations airing episodes well after their US airdates. Fast tracking shows is a way for networks to combat this trend and serves to keep Australian audiences happy.
