Prime7 is an Australian television network owned by Prime Media Group Limited, an affiliate of the Seven Network. Prime Television launched on 17 March 1962 as CBN-8 in Orange, has since expanded to cover regional New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. Prime7 along with GWN7 national broadcast facilities are based in Canberra, with playout facilities located at MediaHub Australia. Prime Media Group head office/administration is located in Sydney. Prime Television began as a group of separate stations and networks – Midstate Television in Orange and Griffith. CBN-8 Orange first aired on 17 March 1962, followed by CWN-6 Dubbo on 1 December 1965; the two stations were both licensed to Country Television Services. CWN was a full-time relay of CBN -- the first Australian television station; the two stations thus formed the country's first regional television network. Albury launched on 7 September 1964 while RVN-2 Wagga Wagga began broadcasting on 19 June 1964, MTN-9 Griffith began on 15 December 1965.
The two stations merged in 1971 as the Riverina and North East Victoria Television Service Pty Ltd with the callsign RVN/AMV on air. In northern New South Wales, NEN-9 Tamworth began transmission on 27 September 1965, with a relay in Armidale on 15 July 1966. ECN-8 Taree started on 27 May 1966. At one stage, ECN-8 was tied NRN-11 Coffs Harbour, however the two stations split. NEN merged with ECN as 9-8 Television; as a result of the financial difficulties that many independent stations faced, MTN-9 joined CWN-6 and CBN-8 to form Television 6-8-9 in 1973. Relays were launched in Portland, Mudgee, Cobar and Rylstone and Bathurst. In 1981, 6-8-9 changed its name to Midstate Television. Colour television was introduced at the same time as the rest of the country, on 1 March 1975 – one of the single most expensive processes undertaken by CBN to date; the station was a prominent broadcaster of local sporting events including rugby. In 1979, a documentary titled Goin' Down The Road, about the 1978 National Rodeo Titles won the network a Logie award for an'Outstanding Contribution by a Regional Station'.
Midstate produced a number of local programs, including the Weekend Report, Early Shift, Rural Roundup and Around the Schools. From 1968, CBN was able to access a Postmaster General's Department microwave link for national news bulletins and major events. Midstate Television was bought out by media magnate Paul Ramsay's Ramcorp Ltd. in October 1987. It was soon merged with Ramcorp's other stations, RVN/AMV and NEN/ECN. In 1988, Midstate Television was renamed Prime Television and began to show increased Seven Network programming in readiness for aggregation; when aggregation took place, Prime began broadcasting to both southern New South Wales and northern Victoria. Transmission problems meant that aggregation in southern New South Wales took place in two stages – first the Australian Capital Territory and NSW south coast on 31 March 1989, followed by Orange and Wagga Wagga on 31 December 1989; these changes led to the de-merger of RVN-AMV, with RVN becoming CBN-2. Griffith remained a one-station market, however instead of taking programming from Prime in line with the network's other stations, MTN-9 relayed programming from WIN Television in southern New South Wales.
A supplementary licence, AMN-31, was bid for by MTN in 1996, providing a relay of Prime Television. Soon after the station was purchased by WIN Television, which undertook a number of minor changes – changing the news service to WIN News, using WIN branding. AMN-31 remains a relay of Prime; the Mildura licence area remained separate from the remainder of Victoria, albeit with a single station, STV-8 bought out by WIN Television in 1996. In 1997 Prime was successful in bidding for a new licence for the area at a cost of $3.2 million. PTV-31 began broadcasting the following year. Although advertising revenue increased post-aggregation, local programming declined as a result of the costs incurred by the network's expansion – an estimated $45 million had been spent by Ramcorp during and in the lead-up to aggregation. After losses of $50 million, it was not until 1993 that the renamed Prime Television Limited posted a profit. Prime Television became the first commercial network in Australia to add a digital on-screen graphic to the network's broadcasts.
Starting in the early 90s, the first watermark consisted of the Prime text from the network's former circle logo, was located at the top right of the screen. The watermark was updated in 2001 to coincide with Prime's new logo, still shown at the top right of the screen; this continued until Prime Television's relaunch as Prime7 in 2011. The watermark is now seen like most TV network watermarks. In November 1996, Prime's parent company, Prime Television Limited, purchased the Golden West Network, a merged group of four stations in regional Western Australia. Western Australia, similar to Griffith and Mildura, remained a one-station commercial market until 1999 when GWN became a Seven Network affiliate, after WIN Television began transmission as an affiliate of both the Nine Network and Network Ten; the network began to expand into New Zealand in 1997, when a number of licences were purchased from United Christian Broadcasters for an estimated $3.6 million. Prime Television New Zealand began broadcasting on 30 August 1998, with a nightly local news program in both Waikato and Christchurch.
