Eleven (stylised as ELEVEN) is an Australian free-to-air digital television multichannel, which was launched by Network Ten on 11 January 2011[2] It offers catch-up and encore programming. Eleven is also the home of Australia’s longest running drama series, Neighbours.[3]

Joint venture[edit]

Network Ten established a separate joint venture, entitled Eleven Co., with international distributor CBS Studios International to provide content for Eleven.[4][5] Subject to regulatory approval, Ten holds two-thirds equity stake in the venture, with CBS holding the remaining share. Under the arrangement, Eleven sources programming from CBS's back catalogue.

Programming[edit]

Eleven offers catch-up and encore presentations from Channel Ten[3][6][7] It features a mix of repeated old shows, brand new shows to Australian television, and shows that would make their debut on Australian free-to-air television.

Some of Ten's shows aimed at a younger demographic, most notably Neighbours and The Simpsons, were moved to Eleven on the day it launched, as part of Ten's re-branding to target the older demographic, while the younger shows move to Eleven.[8][9][10] The decision to move Neighbours and The Simpsons was to also make way for a new current affairs show in Ten's 6:00–7:00pm timeslot.[8] Neighbours has since become Eleven's highest-rating program and the number-one regular Australian program on the digital multichannels, averaging 278,000 viewers.[3]

On 27 February 2012, Toasted TV was moved from Ten to Eleven due to a number of changes to their morning line-up, which included the launch of Breakfast.[11] In November 2013, more of Ten's shows including Totally Wild, Scope, Wurrawhy and Mako: Island of Secrets moved to Eleven due to the launch of Wake Up, later cancelled due to bankruptcy and Studio 10. Other first-run Australian content on Eleven include Couch Time, The Loop and Bondi Ink Tattoo.[6][12]

Eleven also features films sourced from its studio-output deals, including 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight Pictures, DreamWorks Animation with Fox, TriStar Pictures, Universal Pictures shared with Seven, and Paramount Pictures shared with Nine.

In 2014, The channel was majorly changed from a "distinctly youthful" organised channel, to a catch-up and encores dedicated channel, with programming taken from Channel Ten, with every program slotted in as "To Be Advised", is which the channel is unable to match the same timeslots as the other rivals digital channels. Eleven's schedule will remain unchanged.

On 13 April 2016, Eleven switched from the Supertext logo to Network Ten's Closed Captioning logo, when Ten discontinued the "CC" symbol since the mid-2000s.
