History

Prior to WIN Television's expansion into Western Australia, the Golden West Network was the sole commercial network operating in regional areas, and carried programming from the Seven, Nine and Ten networks. [cite web

] On March 26, 1999, WIN Western Australia officially commenced transmissions as a dual Nine Network and Network Ten affiliate. This in turn left Seven Network affiliation to the Golden West Network. [cite web

The history of GWN as a solus operator has limited WIN's ability for success in the region. WIN Television has run second to GWN in every ratings survey to date. [cite web
