As part of its plans, Ten announced that it intended to establish a separate joint venture, entitled ElevenCo, with international distributor CBS Studios International to provide content for the new channel. Subject to regulatory approval, the Ten Network will hold a two-thirds equity stake in the venture, with CBS holding the remaining share. Under the arrangement, Eleven will be able to source programming from CBS's back catalogue.
Eleven is aimed at distinctly youthful viewers between the ages of 13 and 29. It features a mix of repeated old shows, brand new shows to Australian television, and shows that would make their free-to-air debut. Eleven also features films sourced from its studio-output deals, including 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight Pictures, DreamWorks Animation and Paramount Pictures. Many of Ten's shows have been moved to Eleven due to poor ratings, most notably Neighbours and The Simpsons. Neighbours has since become Eleven's highest-rating program and is the only Australian drama series running exclusively on a digital channel. Other first-run Australian content on Eleven include Couch Time, The Loop and Toasted TV.
