It’s not that simple guys. 10 can’t help it if they’re ultimately told no deal.


Not to mention Murdoch was still running the place when many of the rights to these sports were up for bidding.

Unfortunate timing but not much that can be done about that.


I’d create a rolling AU CBSN for 10 All Access - simply keep the 10 News First brand. Then flood the broadcast schedule with content.


Ultimately Ten bid for the cricket and fox bid and yeh were told its a done deal and they couldn’t really counter. Once fox locked in, CA needed a fta partner but fox were never going to work with a CBS owned ten and seven were able to nab the sub standard component of the deal. Very corrupt process. Can’t change now.

But really ten need to be much more ruthless and aggressive when it comes to rights and programming. Whilst they have that McGarvey there that won’t happen.


Is there a precedent for a free-to-air network watching major sporting rights (aka hours of content) vanish without anything comparable to replace them with at any point in the year? I know Seven lost the AFL at one point but they still had the Tennis, Olympics and Melbourne Cup. Sure Ten have motor racing and Melbourne Cup but they’re not really comparable to Olympics, Cricket, AFL, League or Tennis.


What about all the years before Big Bash? Ten didn’t always have a major sport.




Ten didn’t always have AFL either.



The last time Ten were moderately successful/profitable without the rights to any major sport probably would been during the 1992-2001 timeframe - after losing what was then the NSW-RL to Nine, but before getting the AFL rights in the 2002-06 broadcast deal. But you simply can’t compare the Australian TV/media landscape of 20-30 years ago to the one we’ve got now!


Didn’t they technically offer more but it was over 5 years?


yes. but they also wanted the streaming rights and CA scoffed.


Doesnt stop it being extremely popular in South Korea and now in the US.


The Masked Singer is also popular in China.


The name sounds shit too.


David Knox wrote on his TV Tonight website this morning (on the site’s 12th anniversary) that “progress has also been made with Network 10 and I look forward to resuming Programming posts asap”.

They really should have had some supporting new content ready for the post Celebrity slots to launch the new year, one of the pilot week shows, Hughesy, a drama etc.

Resting on their laurels with just one show 6 nights a week that struggled last year to gain any traction and without a decent lead in from the BBL this year is pretty disappointing programming.


I feel for I’m A Celebrity. No idea how this is going to work. And as a viewer of the show and a tennis watcher, obviously I’m going to be prioritising live sport.

What next, networks going to start putting top tier programming against the Olympics :unamused:
