One (stylised as ONE) is an Australian free-to-air high-definition digital television multichannel, which was launched by Network Ten on 26 March 2009. The channel initially focused on broadcasting sports-based programming and events, but changed in April 2011 to more reality, scripted and adventure-based programming aimed at males between the ages of 25 to 54.[2]


26 March 2009 – 6 May 2011: Sports format[edit]

One HD logo (2009–2011)

The channel commenced broadcasting as One HD 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.[3] The channel, owned by Network Ten, featured nonstop sport content including live sport, sports documentaries and sports-themed movies.[4]

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.[5]

One broadcasts in high definition on digital channels 1 and 12.[6] At launch, One replaced the previous Ten HD service and a standard definition simulcast of Ten HD[citation needed] 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.[7]

One HD initially also broadcast a standard definition simulcast on digital channel 11 known as "One SD". This broadcast was later replaced by Ten's 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[edit]

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 and would also be rebranded as One. The changes were intended to make the channel a greater competitor against 7mate, which has a similar scope,[8][9] and took place on 7 May 2011.

One's updated schedule included factuals like Everest: Beyond the Limit, Extreme Fishing with Robson Green, Airline, Long Way Round, Ice Road Truckers, An Idiot Abroad, Cops, dramas likeTerriers, Lights Out, Sons of Anarchy, Burn Notice, Breakout Kings and Psych and movies likeThe Last King of Scotland, 28 Weeks Later, Babylon AD, Jarhead, Pitch Black, Doom, Hitman, and The Manchurian Candidate.

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