Nine is Buying the View from Corus

Australia’s Nine Network has acquired real estate series Buying the View from Canadian distributor Corus Entertainment.

A+E Networks Asia has also picked up the 26x30mins series in which home buyers search for properties with fantastic views.

Our House Media produced it in association with Corus-owned W Network, and previous deals have seen it sold to Italy’s CS Media Group, for the Dove Channel.

Meanwhile, Life Inspired and has bought 12x60mins Masters of Flip for territories such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Discovery Channel in Norway has also bought the show, in which a couple make investments in rundown real estate before turning them into stunning, sellable homes. Rhino Content produced it for W Network.

“Buyers from around the world are embracing Buying the View and Masters of Flip, where the shows are already ratings hits in multiple territories,” said John MacDonald, senior VP, women and lifestyle content, at Corus, which is currently in the process of buying Shaw Family stablemate Shaw Media.
