Eleven (stylized as ELEVEN) is an Australian free-to-air digital television multichannel that is owned and operated by ElevenCo, a joint venture between Network Ten and CBS Studios International. This channel launched on 11 January 2011.[3] It offers catch-up and encore programming. Eleven is also the home of Australia’s longest running drama series, Neighbours.[4]

Joint venture

Network Ten established a separate joint venture named ElevenCo, with international distributor CBS Studios International to provide content for Eleven.[5][6] 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

Eleven offers catch-up and encore presentations from Channel Ten.[4][7][8] It features a mix of repeated old shows, 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.[9][10][11] 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.[9] Neighbours has since become Eleven's highest-rating program and the number-one regular Australian program on the digital multichannels, averaging 278,000 viewers.[4]

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.[12] 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.[7][13]
