The Nine Guide was a television channel provided by the Nine Network to digital television viewers in Australia. It began broadcasting on 21 August 2001. The channel was broadcast 24 hours a day. The Nine Guide was available to viewers in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. The Guide was modified for state-based programming and program promotions. The guide initially launched in Sydney, with Melbourne and Brisbane later launching the guide in 2002.
The Nine Guide was shut down on Thursday, 13 November 2008 and was replaced by a full-screen simulcast of Channel Nine. The channel was later allocated to Nine's multichannel Go!.
The Nine Guide featured a television guide for programming on Channel Nine for the following twelve hours. The channel also provided an updated television schedule for Channel Nine's programming, including the availability of native high-definition, ratings classifiction and teletext availability of programs. Realtime weather information was also available for select Australian and New Zealand cities as well as realtime date and time information
A live 16:9 video preview of Channel Nine was available on the top left of the Nine Guide. The live video preview was also accompanied by Now On and Coming Up program information to the left of the live video preview.
The Nine Guide advertised new and prime time television programs from Channel Nine via a small billboard loop on the bottom left. The advertising contained program information including the program title and Channel Nine broadcast time, that were modified for different timezones and state-based programming.
The Nine Guide's onair look has been changed several times since its launch in August 2001. The channel initially had a blue colour scheme with white text, and a smaller 16:9 preview of Channel Nine.
A few years later, the Nine Guide had a revamp of its on-air presentation. The design had a daily colour scheme, alternating every twenty-four hours. The channel featured a similar sized 16:9 ratio preview of Channel Nine, and a National Nine News and weather slide at the top. On 30 January 2006 coinciding with the relaunch of Channel Nine's new logo and revamp on its on-air identity, the guide revamped with a new look and a larger 16:9 ratio preview of Channel Nine.
The Nine Guide then relaunched with a revamp again on 21 January 2007 coinciding with the revamp of Channel Nine's branding of its on-air identity. The guide now featured a similar sized 16:9 ratio preview of Channel Nine.
The previous onair identity of the Nine Guide launched on 1 December 2007 along with the new slogan: we♥tv. The guide featured a similar sized 16:9 ratio preview of Channel Nine.
