Eleven yet to be confirmed for regional viewers
Regional viewers don't know yet if they will be able to watch shows such as Neighbours and The Simpsons when they shift to Eleven.
Regional viewers are yet to hear if Eleven will be coming to screens next year.
The new digital channel from TEN is due to launch in early 2011, but Southern Cross Media is still exploring its options.
At its recent Full Year Results presentation, CEO Rhys Holleran said Southern Cross Media only learned
about the channel just a week before TEN announced the channel.
“What we need to make the decision on is how we might serve the commercials out into different regions,” he told media.
“Those decisions haven’t been made. It would depend on the sort of audience levels that we might expect will be the key driver in that. ie. can we make a quid out of it?
“We’ll make those decisions based on what information we get back as to what we can expect from a ratings point of view, from that product moving forward.”
If the channel doesn’t launch at the same time as TEN launches it, regional viewers will be at risk of missing out on Neighbours, The Simpsons and other titles such as Dexter, Supernatural and Smallville.
