The Channel 5 deals give both soaps long term funding. Indeed, ITV offered double the money to keep Home and Away, but Channel 5 committed to it for far longer.
I think H&A has had far more care and attention on Channel 5 than it ever had on ITV.
Channel 5 has life rights to H&A, as long as it’s still being made by Seven, it’ll air in the U.K.
The original Neighbours deal on Channel 5 was £300m over 10 years but I think they are paying a lot less for it now. I would say Neighbours is more valuable for the channel it gets just over 1m in the 1345 slot alone when you include consolidated figures. I wouldn’t be shocked if they beat ITV when it’s own.
