24: Live Another Day fast-tracked on tenplay

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 2.40.06 pm.jpgTEN is offering the first 2 episodes of 24: Live Another Day to Australia on tenplay for just 24 hours.

The series return, which airs today in the United States will be available from 6pm (AEST) today -a move that will go some way to addressing a 6 day delay in broadcast.

TEN Chief Digital Officer, Rebekah Horne, said: “24: Live Another Day is event television at its best.

“We know some fans will want to see the first episode as soon as it runs in the US and we’re delighted to be able to use www.tenplay.com.au to bring it to them.”

24: Live Another Day, which stars Keifer Sutherland in his iconic role as Jack Bauer, will debut on

Four years ago, Jack was a fugitive from justice. Now an exile, he is living in London and still willing to risk his life and freedom to stop a global disaster.

The new event series also co-stars Kim Raver, William Devane, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Benjamin Bratt and Tate Donovan, plus Stephen Fry in a recurring role as the British Prime Minister.

Launched in 2001, the original 24 was nominated for 73 Emmy Awards. Over eight seasons, Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor – Drama Series. The series also earned 12 Golden Globe Award nominations, winning for Best Television Series – Drama in 2004 and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama (Sutherland) in 2002.

TEN on Monday, May 12, at 8.45pm.

  1. I agree, it would be great if they fast tracked it in HD tonight, then replay it Monday on TEN. And while doing this on TENPLAY is a good step why only 24 hours and are they going to promote it? Also will they do the same next week?

    Agree @Bogues – I have already seen the latest episodes by other means in HD quality – wouldn’t have worried if I knew it would be on Ten, Eleven or One HD tonight, and not just put on a low quality stream only viewable on a tablet.

    By the way – the show was worth the wait, great to have Jack & Chloe back on our screens.

  3. Under the Dome worked very well fast tracked at 8.30(ish) on Tuesdays, so I do not see why this would not work in the same time slot.

  4. Why Ten aren’t doing same day plays on One (in HD) or Ten for this is beyond me (Season 8 was shown on 7two same day IIRC).

    Even if it was shown on One tonight, and Ten on Monday, that would be excellent.
