SYDNEY (Hollywood Reporter) - Disney’s “High School Musical 2” has broken broadcasting records in Australia, airing to the highest number of viewers ever for a movie on pay TV here.

The Disney Channel Australia premiere averaged 313,976 viewers Saturday, and a 55.4% share of kids ages five to 15 years, also making it the highest-rated kids program to air on pay TV here. Disney Channel is available to about 26% of the country’s 7 million TV homes.

The hit TV movie will get a free-to-air outing in December on the Seven Network. “High School Musical” was one of the top-rated movies on TV overall last year when it aired to 1.23 million viewers on Seven.
