million live streams were recorded, with a total of 32
million viewing minutes.

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony
And just like that, it’s all over! The 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games will culminate this Sunday evening with a Closing Ceremony extravaganza. This event will broadcast on TVNZ 1.
Making sense of the ratings:
• Reach counts everyone who watched the programme for at least one minute – it’s the measure that captures the full scale of the audience.
• 5+ numbers capture the total audience watching.
