6th Logo (2000-2001)

Logo: On a water background, several blue streaks whiz around to form the Network Ten logo where only the top right quarter of it is shown while the URL "www.ten.com.au" flashes in past a couple of times before disappearing until it wipes in from the right.

Trivia: This was also used as a station ID throughout the time period.

Music/Sounds: A bubbling sound, a whoosh and twinkle the streaks make, followed by a 2-note keyboard and finishes with a synthesized female voice echoing "Ten".

Music/Sounds Variant: In the secondary version, it uses a whiny high pitched synthesizer, bubble sounds that are much louder than the original, and a quiet whoosh when the logo appears
