FOUR -The Home of Not Rugby

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / TV & Cinema Communications / Multi Platform Branding & Promotions / 2012

New Zealand is a rugby mad nation. During the 2011 Rugby World Cup the game was everywhere – across nearly all New Zealand media, 24/7. But TV channel Four had no rugby content on its schedule whatsoever. So it positioned itself as ‘The Home of NOT Rugby’ – a destination where non-rugby lovers (or those suffering from rugby overload) could enjoy the latest award-winning TV shows. Viewership increased by more than ten per cent during the Rugby World Cup while all other free-to-air channels lost viewers. Nice result.
