Network Ten’s chief content officer Beverley McGarvey said: “How brilliant is it to be launching 10 All Access with three incredible CBS All Access original series in One Dollar, Strange Angel and Tell Me A Story? They are three exciting series that have recently launched in the US. Outside of the originals, 10 All Access will be the place where people can enjoy the best binge-worthy entertainment from CBS and 10.”
At launch, 10 All Access will also be giving Australian fans access to new CBS primetime series months before they air on Network 10, including highly anticipated new series Happy Together as well as new seasons of current hits like MacGyver.
In addition, 10 All Access’ library will include current shows, past seasons and classic TV hits from Network 10 and CBS such as CBS hits like The Good Wife, NCIS, Frasier, Cheers and Survivor, as well as Australian favourites like Neighbours, The Bachelor Australia, The Bachelorette Australia, The Living Room and I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!.
10 All Access will join Ten’s existing viewing ecosystem alongside linear broadcast channels 10, 10 Boss and 10 Peach, live streaming and catch-up player 10 Play, and news and entertainment site 10 Daily.
