The Tasmanian affiliate of the Ten Network, Tasmanian Digital Television (TDT), has announced that it will carry Ten’s new digital channel, 11, from 11 January – the same day that it will launch on Ten.
TDT general manager Stephen Giles announced the decision to The Examiner earlier today.
The news comes almost two weeks after Southern Cross Media (which owns half of TDT) announced that the eastern states Southern Cross Ten stations would also be carrying the new channel from the launch date.
However, there is yet to be any announcement of 11 being broadcast on other Ten affiliates Darwin Digital Television (owned jointly between Southern Cross Media and the Nine Network) and Mildura Digital Television (owned by the WIN and Prime networks). Both affiliates are already carrying Ten’s existing digital channel One HD.
Meanwhile, Network Ten has started playing a preview loop on digital channel 11 in preparation for the new channel’s launch:

Southern Cross Ten have changed the name of LCN 55 (the former MyView channel) to Eleven.
Still a simulcast of LCN 5 though
