Share Canberra's trusted news:

DESPITE the lack of Australian gold medals, ratings results show the WIN Networks’ coverage of the London Olympics has dominated ratings in Canberra and the rest of the nation.

The latest results show WIN took out 15 of the top 20 spots on the ratings list in Canberra and claimed three more spots with the national and WIN news, leaving PRIME to squeak onto the chart with its Sunday night news and current affairs coverage.

Nationally, viewers for the Olympics coverage peaked at 2.1 million viewers on Day 2, while the Network’s subscription television partner Foxtel averaged 600,000 viewers in prime time across all its channels.
