One (stylised as ONE) is an Australian free-to-air 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.[3] Due to the rebroadcast of Ten HD on 2 March 2016, One was reduced to a standard definition broadcast.[4][5]


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.[6] The channel, owned by Network Ten, featured nonstop sport content including live sport, sports documentaries and sports-themed movies.[7]

One initially broadcast in high definition on digital channels 1 and 11 with a standard definition simulcast on digital channel 12 known as One SD or One Digital.[8][9] At launch, One replaced the previous Ten HD service and a standard definition simulcast of Ten HD called TenSD2.[9] 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.[10] The simulcast on digital channel 11 was later reallocated for Ten's standard definition digital multichannel Eleven on 15 December 2010 in preparation for its launch on 11 January 2011. As a result, the channel's high definition simulcast was moved to channel 12, replacing the standard definition simulcast.

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.[11]

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,[12][13] 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 like Terriers, Lights Out, Sons of Anarchy, Burn Notice, Breakout Kings and Psych and movies like The 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 shared with the Nine Network, Fox Searchlight Pictures, Columbia Pictures shared with the Seven Network, Regency Enterprises, TriStar Pictures shared with the Seven Network, Universal Pictures shared with the Seven Network and Paramount Pictures shared with the Nine Network.

As a result of the revival of Ten HD on 2 March 2016, One was reduced to standard definition.[4][5]

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