Re-read what I said. At no point did I say that 10 was responsible to no one. I said that 10 doesnt have to tell shareholders, let alone any member of the public, their plans or intentions.
But they do that. Read the news section of their website. You appear to be saying they can be transparent when it suits them and that is satisfactory? People and businesses who gatekeep information like that don’t tend to do well.
Righto. I said they dont need to.
Do they do it for other fully fledged FTA networks they own?
According to Studio 10 this morning, both Part 1 & 2 of Leaving Neverland will air at 8:30pm next Friday & Saturday.
I tihnk that’s a good move, it would never have got an audience at 9:30, but I think it should have been run over another night.
Is 10’s schedule still blank for 9:30pm to 11:30pm tomorrow?

10’s Liv Phyland has a travel special coming this weekend called Discover Japan: Okinawa with Liv Phyland to air from 4:30-5:00pm on Saturday & repeated at 1:00-1:30pm Sunday on their main channel. It looks like she travelled over there in late January for filming, but I can’t find any other details about the programme online.
10 have recently signed a content supply agreement (disclaimer: deduced, not publicly announced) with Defiant Screen Entertainment.
Australian all rights distributor, based in NSW. Formerly known as “Anchor Bay”.
Seems to be 10 Bold. Content seen so far includes CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY (no longer licenced by CBS) and independent movies such as “I.T.” (2016) which has aired and a FTA premiere “Stratton” (2017) this Sunday.
Good to see 10 investing in more content, they need it, especially with 10 Bold performing very well and having lost the 20C Fox output Even though licencing is expensive, although won’t be as much as a Hollywood studio and 10 have extra cash now too.
CBS owns CSI, of course. I can understand licencing the programs for DVD and Blu-ray as happens with some programs, which the Defiant Screen Entertainment website shows - they have distribution rights for the CSI DVDs. But why would CBS effectively use an agent for the free-to-air rights in Australia?
True, makes sense.
They’re definitely airing indie movies from Defiant though.

Wasteland, rpt rpt rpt rpt. 10 still think its summer? Or does 9pm and after not exist?
I don’t want to be unnecessarily harsh, but for goodness sake.
What do you want to see instead?
Anything new. Even a doco or specials that may have aired elsewhere but is fresh to 10. Surely there’s some FTA movie premieres that they can burn off.
But countless encores of shows we watched days ago over and over is the main issue here.
Seven and Nine are airing encores too, but not almost nightly and usually late at night not 9pm. And if they are or have been at 9pm, it was Sunday after their two other prime time shows finished.
