    This could hopefully lead to the creation of a new separate digital channel for Ten which could be called “The Family Channel” and cater specifically for daytime/early evening family audiences (including younger children) with shows like Hi-5 House. I noticed that Eleven’s morning line-up is skewed towards children and families, so perhaps Ten should consider teaming up with Asiasons (Hi-5’s new producers), CBS/Nickelodeon etc to help get this new digital children’s/family channel started on Freeview in the (hopefully) not-too distant future.

  2. That show should look different as this show has been shifted from the nine network to Eleven. I remembered when this show started on the Nine Network in 1999 and was transferred to GO in 2010.
