10 is about to shake, rattle and roll as the ViacomCBS owned station launches its new multi channel 10 SHAKE at the start of the school holidays.
TV Blackbox can exclusively reveal that the new multi channel 10 Shake will launch Sunday 27th September on Channel 13 in metropolitan markets, the first weekend of the school holidays for many states.
The new channel, hinted at by Steve Molk at TV Blackbox exactly 12 months ago will be mixed with kids programming during the day and ‘guilty pleasure’ programming at night.
Launch highlights will include:
The Charlotte Show, Catfish: The TV Show, Teen Mom Australia, Ridiculousness, Just Tattoo Of Us, Lip Sync Battle, Inside Amy Schumer, Drunk History, Comedy Central Roasts, The Late Late Show with James Corden and many more.
With 10 Shake moving into channel 13, viewers will still be able to find 10HD broadcasting but will move to channel 1.
Regional viewers will need to access streaming platform 10play to find the new content. A spokesperson for broadcaster WIN Television this week confirmed to TV Blackbox;
“At this stage, WIN won’t be broadcasting 10 Shake.”
The WIN spokesperson declined to confirm if negotiations were continuing.
In somewhat of a reset for the network, TV Blackbox can also exclusively reveal Junior MasterChef will return on the same night on the main primary channel.

TV Blackbox also understands the new season of The Bachelorette Australia will air the same week, namely September 30th with a new season.
This fourth quarter reset, puts 10 in a strong position as it equals the amount of multi channels of that of Seven (Nine has an extra one) and provides fresh content through to the end of the ratings year, when the competition is relying more heavily on repeat content.
With Junior MasterChef, FBI, Have You Been Paying Attention, Drunk History Australia, Family Feud, The Bachelor, Todd Sampson’s Body Hack, Gogglebox Australia, This Is Us, The Living Room and Law & Order: SVU, 10 continues to have content available through year end. Five Bedrooms has finished filming and is available, although that may be held over for 2021.
10 also has unaired episodes of The Children’s Hospital, Celebrity Name Game and Changing Rooms to air with US programming such as Nancy Drew, Charmed, Man with a Plan, The Neighborhood, Dating #No Filter, In the Dark and L.A’s Finest sitting on the shelf.
