Fuel prices

This is not a complaint but when you display petrol prices can you PLEASE show Diesel prices as well. So many people have diesel vehicles are the price vary so much. It would help if you did this.

Bus and pedestrian

Channel 7 6 pm news covered the tragic story of the bus that killed a 70 y.o. Gentleman on a crossing showing green light. Despite the news reader saying the impact wouldn’t be shown because it was too confronting, the footage continued until just before the impact, Leaving everything to one’s imagination. Did you consider how this would effect family, friends, children and TV viewers? I have just switched to Channel 7 and was really disgusted and disappointed by the apparent lack of compassion.

BBL Coverage

My 10 year old asked me to help him make a complaint about channel 7’s BBL coverage.
My son is upset because he can’t watch his favourite BBL team play. He wants channel 7 to give it back to channel 10 because they had better coverage.
Sincerely
Calan Robertson (age 10) 😡

Also, please stop showing inappropriate advertisements for adult content TV shows during kid friendly shows.
Sincerely
Mrs Robertson

My kitchen rules

Very disappointed over the last couple of seasons about the nastiness of this show.This is a cooking show why do you have such nasty people on it? It spoils the whole show and l will not be watching it anymore. In this day and age people should be building each other up not constantly being rude and horrible. If this is what you need for ratings well !!!!!! You have lost me and my family.

Cricket

So much for watching the BBL live every night, You have 4 channels and still can't show the cricket to the public. Instead you show reruns of old show. Bye bye 7 never again.

News bias

I have watching your 7 News on a daily basis for many years.
I have come to the conclusion the format and commentary is slanted to the left side of politics at both a State and Federal level.
Today's lead story about the Light Rail Project was just a rehash of old news and only scant coverage was given to power blackouts in Victoria as this was only a minor matter as far as your Newsroom is concerned.
Your reporters never ever mention that the ALP spent $500 million on light rail to Rozelle for no tangible result.
Whatever happened to Mr Foley who after the scandal involving an ABC reporter vanished from the 7 News after 1 day.
What about Wal Secord's disastrous interview with Ben Fordham on 2GB. Apparently it suited your Newsroom to ignore this event.
You spend too much time promoting Bill Shorten when any forensic examination of his past raises many unanswered questions.
You would rather focus on Barnaby Joyce's private indiscretions and totally ignore Mr Shortens similar ones.
I could go on and on and would suggest a bit more balance.
If I could speak to Jason Morrison I would but he seems invisible in terms of setting a balanced format from your station.

cHANNEL 7 CRICKET

Channel 7 advertised last year that they will show "every ball of every game" of cricket. What about the one day games!!!
Please bring it back to channel 9 as the telecast is far better and the commanantry on channel 7 is so so bad!!!

Cricket

Good afternoon, I wish to add my complete disappointment in your pathetic coverage of Cricket!!
You are losing viewers because you are so haphazard with your delivery of content (Games)
Question you have paid a lot of money to cricket Australia? Why give them a dollar if you don't get full coverage of games.

Contrary to popular belive Not every one has or wants Foxtel . You do now have a lot of channels which you put repeat crap on.
A TV service provider could do worse than turn one Chanel into SPORTS COVERAGE !! And another into film and not Repeats of Repeats.. You are losing viewers because you are not meeting the challenge of new viewing habits ..

Cricket Broadcast

I wish to express my complete disgust in Channel 7 not broadcasting ODI cricket this season (and as I understand it for the next 5 seasons). I am a support worker and each year I have organised groups of disadvantaged people, men and women, young and elderly of many different nationalities to meet to watch ODI cricket matches. This became so popular these people who are socially and/or economically challenged and have not much else in their lives, were looking forward to each cricket season. These meetings would be held in the homes of those people who could afford a television. Now that Channel 7 has taken over cricket broadcasting this event has ceased, leaving some members devastated. Your decision not to broadcast ODI Cricket matches has had a huge impact on the lives of some of the community who do not have a lot of social activities to look forward to and who most certainly cannot afford pay TV. From my own perspective, Channel 7 broadcast is amateurish in comparison to Channel 9. Well done Channel 7

Impartial news coverage

Sunrise Morning Show drop in standards.
For the past few weeks the new morning show male presenter has displayed his total lack of respect for certain politicians including th current prime minister. Obviously the Chanel 7 station believe it is OK to openly mock and treat rudely the people it does not agree with.
Suprisingly there are a great many Australians who admire Fraser Anning's courage in voicing his concerns about the rise in Sudanese crime gang voilence. When mocking Mr Anning's view on the Queensland now being affected ; maybe the Sunrise presenter should have watched the previous few weeks Chanel 7 evening news.
Disrespectful, smug, arrogant, self serving little brat.
I for one will cast my vote with my remote and find another source of daily news. Hopefully one which can deliver it in a fair and impatial manner.
Good bye ; you now have another lost viewer

Sydney to Hobart coverage Sunrise

Have been trying to watch Sunrises ‘Live coverage’ of the ending of the Sydney to Hobart race. What a joke!!! 10-15 minutes before the finish you show an old clip of ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ not to mention your other repetitive news clips. Thank God for the ABC for their excellent coverage of the ending who gave it the full coverage it deserved. Let’s hope if Chnnel 7 get the rights next year that they can do a much better job. It couldn’t get worse.

English language

When the Sunrise team read the news or anything, the person who writes it on the screen for them to read, should be sacked.
People are WHO not THAT.
Even the out the field news reporters say people THAT instead of people WHO.
The other week someone said People, One of WHICH said. One of Which - for goodness sake.
Unless they can speak correctly they shouldn't be on TV.

Why can’t the golf missed while having ads be replayed when coverage resumes? Can’t be too hard

PGA golf coverage

Very amateurish coverage, do they realise their ads don’t have to stop them recording the live playing, therefore why can’t they replay what was missed during the ads. That doesn’t sound hard, I wish someone could fix this ASAP. So hard to watch

Cricket Coverage

I was already very dissapointed with the lack of cricket coverage from channel 7. Was thinking okay we still get the Big Bash, only to find there are 4 games this weekend and not one is covered. Not even a delayed broadcast. Pathetic channel 7, who is the goose that gave you the broadcast rights and who makes these decisions? Please sack them. Until now I was happy with 7, changed rapidly.

Rain in Sydney

And I quote from "Sam" this morning..."keep your kids home from school if you can..." Sorry, is this official advice from the Sunrise team? What are they doing here? Can they leave it to the adults and the teachers and the school representatives to make informed decisions and informed advice please???? Can you show some intelligence and stop mouthing off with meaningless statements ??

Cricket coverage

I don’t normally do this but am so disappointed with the scant free to air coverage of cricket under the 7 banner that I have to speak out. Cricket coverage is even worse than AFL coverage since 7 and Foxtel became involved and it means that many people such as me are now unable to watch a complete coverage as we can’t afford Foxtel. I’m afraid that my days of viewing 7 are coming to an end. I do realise that this will have no bearing on the situation as the decisions made are obviously financially driven but you should be aware that a great number of people are in the same situation as me and the short term gains currently being enjoyed could well be reversed in time.

Channel 7 golf coverage

Every day the coverage is cut off before the final groups finish.Then we are subject to a repeat of Bondi rescue. Why doesn't programming switch the final coverage to 7 mate for eastern states viewers and remain on 7HD for Perth so us people watching on TV can see the end to the round.
Poor form indeed. Very amateurish

Costs to enter Cash Cow competition

Since NBN has arrived my calls to Cash Cow have increased from $0.55 ea on the land line to $1.39 call costs plus $0.55 SMS costs added on to the call as my Telco says NBN does not handle calls to 19 numbers on the land line and I have to use my mobile. I am assured by my Telco that both these costs are regulated by Ch. 7 At a daily cost for just one call of $1.94 I have had to curtail my calls as my pension will not strech to more than one call a day. Can you please confirm if my Telco is telling me the truth or a furphy. Sincerely, William Nicholls

Wedding

You have the exclusive rights to the Royal wedding
All we get is about 6 commentators talk, talk talk.
Talking about people that have arrived, we don’t get to see any
The ones that we do get to see it would be good if someone told you who they were.
This coverage is a waist of time
I can see Eddie and the others 7 days a week, we want to see the guests arrive.
I think I will turn it off.

Online app doesn’t work properly

Can’t believe that in this day and age you can’t even watch a program on the app without it stopping midway through an ad and then freezing on you, then you have to start all over again. What an absolute waste of my time. If your app doesn’t work properly then don’t bother developing one.

Australia Chase

I am involved in the dog show scene, exhibitor, judge and was a breeder. I take exception to the questions asked like...... what breed if dog is a oodle something or other is just blatantly wrong. They are not pure breeds and is not fair to ask a question of a cross bred, they are not pure and they are not accepted as such. You are helping the Puppy Farm Breeders by asking such questions!
