TVW-7 did not have a rival commercial television station until 1965 when STW-9 commenced broadcasting. STW is an Australian television station owned by the WIN Corporation that is based in Perth, Australia However the presence of a rival did not have a large negative impact on TVW, at least in the early years. In fact a survey by its rival found that more people agreed with a statement that "TVW fulfilled their viewing needs, and it would be a matter of indifference to them if the new station were to cease transmissions" www.mcc.murdoch.edu.au. The six years TVW had as sole commercial operator flowed through for many more years to come, some would even argue that it is still present today considering how well Seven performs in the market compared to Nine, which generally wins comfortably nationally.
After STW-9 entered the market, a 'cartel' was formed between the two stations for the duty of buying from both Australian and overseas production sources. The two stations set up a separate company, TV Facilities, (50%/50% partners). This allowed the stations to purchase programs cheaper than if they were two separate entities, which would bid on shows and subsequently raise prices. This partnership was disliked by Eastern States stations who could not increase their charges to the extent which they would have liked. Allocation of programs was decided by a coin toss, which would allow the winner to pick first and then alternate the picking of programs. However TVW would always be in a more dominant position as it had the rights to continuing shows from the previous six years as well as half of the new programs.
In 1971 TVW Enterprises purchased the Adelaide station, SAS-10, now SAS-7. Adelaide is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of South Australia, and is the fifth largest city in Australia with a SAS is a Television station in Adelaide, South Australia.
