Network 10 is currently showing off its lineup of shows for 2019 with a whole new logo (as per above) and announcing and confirming that it will also be launching 10 All Access (the local version of CBS All Access) and they have some big plans and shows that will be streaming via the new service.
10 All Access will be a subscription based streaming service and will be launching with more than 7,000 commercial-free episodes across the platform when it launches in just over a month from now. TV shows that the platform will be streaming at launch include the debut of three CBS All Access original series’ in Australia – Tell Me A Story, One Dollar and Strange Angel – alongside the first season of The Good Fight, which currently streams on SBS OnDemand.
10 All Access will also give subscribers access to new CBS prime time series months before they air on Network 10. Shows included in this are Happy Together and MacGyver Reboot. Network 10 will also be keeping its current streaming on-demand service, 10 Play, available for catch up of shows that air on Channel 10, 10 Peach – the new name for Channel 11 – and 10 Boss, formerly known as ONE.
Network 10’s Chief Executive Officer Paul Anderson has said on the launch of 10 All Access:
“It’s great to be working with CBS to give All Access a fresh Aussie twist! 10 All Access fits perfectly into the 10 family and will play a huge part in our future. We want Australians to be able to discover our premium content where ever and however they are looking for entertainment and 10 All Access is an important part of that strategy.”
Whilst Network 10 has announced a few shows that would be available on 10 All Access when its streams, it still hasn’t yet provided a full list and is also yet to confirm how much the streaming service will be. The company has stated it will confirm pricing and a full list of shows “will be announced soon”.
Network 10 are also yet to provide information on whether there will be an Android app (with Chromecast support preferably) or an Android TV app but we would expect at least a basic Android app in the least. We will of course keep our ears to the ground in an attempt to find out more information.
Would you pay for an additional streaming service or would you rather use the current (and free) 10 Play service once 10 All Access launches? Let us know in the comments below.
