How Kogan is taking Magpie mania to the next level

In a move so bold that it seems to channel Peter Daicos’ penchant for the unexpected, Australian retailer Kogan and Collingwood FC together have announced the world’s first club-branded TV.

Most homepages dedicate too much of their valuable space to predictable and generally unhelpful information, such as the purpose of the business, their products and services, their achievements and needy invitations to ‘buy, buy, buy’ or ‘contact us for a free consultation on no obligation quote’.
