Network 10 National IDs (Australia)

From CLG Wiki

Background

Network 10 is one of Australia's three commercial television networks. Launched in 1964 on ATV-0 in Melbourne and TEN-10 in Sydney, the network was first known as the Independent Television System then as the 0/10 network, in reference to the channel numbers of its first two stations. By 1988, ATV-0 had moved frequencies to channel 10, aligning itself with the rest of the network, which was rebranded as Network Ten The network was and still is aimed more at a younger demographic than the other commercial networks, embracing the swinging sixties at launch and becoming renowned for it's teen-oriented programming, such as Cheez-TV in the 1990s. In the 2000s, the network reached its peak with reality shows such as Australian Idol, The Biggest Loser and later Masterchef Australia bringing ratings success, though by the late 2010s, this success had faded and in June 2017 the network went into administration, before being bought out by ViacomCBS in October that year. Following the buyout, the company was restyled as "Network 10", replacing the word with a numeral, and an entirely new logo was introduced for the first time in 27 years.
