Noob question, don´t laugh. 
 
I´ve made my research and I don´t really understand the phenomena.  
Let´s say I want to grade a video for broadcast, I´m grading it in sRGB on my monitor and I forget to choose the REC709. How my video will look on broadcast? It will look darker (more constrasty)?
The second question:
When I toggle between sRGB and REC709 I see a slight change in contrast. Viewing in REC709 my video looks contrasty. Is this how my image should look on broadcast?
 
Thank you!

First question, what is your monitor? Before any final color choices are baked in, I would take a look at it on a broadcast monitor. Your will look different, if it will be higher contrast overall and always?? I don't know, it depends on many factors, but view it again on an real broadcast monitor.
