One is an Australian free-to-air high-definition digital television channel, which was launched by Network Ten on 26 March 2009. The channel initially focused on broadcasting sports-based programing and events, changing in April 2011 to more reality, scripted and adventure-based programing aligning to a younger male demographic.
Many Australians have expressed their dismay at this change.

26 March 2009 – 6 May 2011: Sports format
The channel commenced broadcasting on 26 March 2009 at 7.00 pm in Melbourne (due to live coverage of the Australian Football League) and at 7.30 pm in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. The channel, owned by Network Ten, featured nonstop sport content including live sport, sports documentaries and sports-themed movies.
In 2011, the channel began to dilute its all-sport format to include adventure-themed reality programming such as Ice Road Truckers and Black Gold, and a weekly feature-length movie or documentary, usually, but not limited to, a sporting theme. In April 2011, it was revealed that the channel would shift to a more broad general entertainment channel aimed towards a younger male demographic, whilst still featuring sports programming.
One broadcasts in high definition on digital channels 1 and 12. At launch, One replaced the previous Ten HD service and a standard definition simulcast of Ten HD called TenSD2. One HD began broadcasting on Macquarie Media Group's owned and operated Southern Cross Ten regional television stations on Digital Channel 50 at 7.00 pm on 2 July 2009.
One initially also broadcast a standard definition stream on digital channel 11. This broadcast was later replaced by Ten digital multichannel Eleven on 15 December 2010 in preparation for its official launch on 11 January 2011.
7 May 2011 – present: Sport and entertainment format
It was confirmed on 4 April 2011 that due to unsupportable overheads associated with running the station as an "all-sport" channel, One HD would begin to air more general entertainment programming alongside sport, particularly shows aimed at an older male audience. The changes were intended to make the channel a greater competitor against 7mate, which has a similar scope.
One's updated schedule includes factuals Everest: Beyond the Limit, Extreme Fishing with Robson Green, Airline, Long Way Round, Ice Road Truckers, An Idiot Abroad, Cops; dramas Terriers, Lights Out, Sons of Anarchy, Burn Notice, Breakout Kings and Psych; and movies The Last King of Scotland, 28 Weeks Later, Babylon AD, Jarhead, Pitch Black, Doom, Hitman, and The Manchurian Candidate. By March 2012, sport was very much a secondary focus of One. Sport is generally only on between midnight and lunchtime. ONE's marquee sport, Formula 1, have been moved to TEN, signalling the end of ONE as a 'sports channel'.
Delayed NBL broadcasts
In October 2011, it was confirmed that the National Basketball League games would be delayed. This caused an outrage amongst Australian basketball fans, who took to social networks Facebook and Twitter, voicing their concerns. During the 2012–13 season, some Friday night games were shown live on One at 9.30 pm. Live Sunday games returned to TEN at 2 pm.
