The channel includes a mix of shows for people aged forty and under.[3] It broadcasts programming for children from 6am to 6pm, and from 6pm to 6am shows for young teens to adults.[2]

HistoryEdit

In May 2020, ViacomCBS Australia and New Zealand Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President, Beverley McGarvey, announced that Network 10 would unveil a fourth digital channel later in the year. Complementing Channel 10, 10 Peach and 10 Bold, the fourth channel will appeal to the under 50s audience. Further announcements about the channel would be made in the coming months.[4]

On 13 July 2020, it was announced that Network 10 would launch a third digital channel, 10 Shake, in September, with the name partially inspired by British sister network Channel 5, whose youth block is branded as Milkshake!. The network will carry children's programmes (drawing primarily television series from Nickelodeon brands), while evening and prime time hours will feature "edgy" series and films targeting young adults under 40, including programmes from Comedy Central and MTV, and other imported programmes such as The Late Late Show with James Corden. 10 Shake will also share their ViacomCBS television programmes (including CBS, MTV, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central) with 9Go!, 9Gem, SBS Viceland, ABC Kids, and ABC ME and carry movies from Warner Bros, Village Roadshow, DC Films, and New Line Cinema.[5]

It was confirmed on 13 September 2020 that the new multi channel would launch on Sunday 27 September on Channel 13 in metropolitan markets in time for children's school holidays in many states.[6] Regional viewers via WIN Television will need to access streaming platform 10 Play to find the new content, with WIN currently not planning to launch 10 Shake in the near future.[7][6] But with WIN re-affiliating with the Nine Network in 2021, 10 immediately signed for a re-affiliation deal with SCA that will include carriage of that channel.

ProgrammingEdit

10 Shake features a mix of repeated shows from their slate of output deals, and shows that make their debut on Australian free-to-air television. Most of its programming is sourced from the library of Network 10's parent company ViacomCBS and its television brands from CBS, MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, and other televisions are Non-ViacomCBS.[8] Also the film brands from Paramount, DreamWorks, Warner Bros., Village Roadshow, DC Films, New Line Cinema, and Lionsgate, but the movies come from various distributors and it won't be all from Paramount anymore. Furthermore, a number of ViacomCBS programmes (including television brands from CBS, MTV, Comedy Central, and Nickelodeon) will be provided to other networks of 9Go!, 9Gem, SBS Viceland, ABC Kids, and ABC ME by contractual agreements already in place, following by the same Nickelodeon television programmes with different seasons for 9Go! and 10 Shake will be upcoming in sometime of 2022.

However, Nickelodeon television programmes has been also taken over on 10 due to COVID-19 from 2020 to the present.

10 Shake airs local Australian children's programming, including Totally Wild, Crocamole and other C-classified dramas.[9] Also locally produced for the network is short-form series Shake Takes which is inspired by social media influencers and supported by integration from sponsors such as VTech, Toyworld, Spin Master and The Accent Group.[8]
