The Ashes is on 9Gem or Channel 9 depending on your time zone.

Please check your local guides to confirm.

You can now receive 9Gem in high definition (9Gem HD). 9Gem HD is available on Channel 95.


Why can't my TV pick up 9Gem HD?

The technology being used to transmit the 9Gem HD channel is called MPEG-4. This new technology allows broadcasters to squeeze a higher quality picture into the a smaller space which is limited for them.

Unfortunately, most TV sets that are 5+ years old are unable to receive MPEG-4, you’ll need a Set Top Box like Fetch TV or Telstra TV.
