TEN to refresh logo, ELEVEN, ONE tipped for new names.

TEN is planning a brand refresh, including updated corporate logo and “better defined digital channels” according to reports today.

The Australian Financial Review reports the new logo is expected to be a “significant” refresh rather than a total makeover and “new enough without throwing away the past.”

ONE and ELEVEN are expected to have new names “with closer linkage to the main TEN brand.”

TEN is also expected to shift back to its “network for under 50s” with TEN All Access, a localised version of streaming site CBS All Access, to be launched later in 2018. The latter was one of the key interests the US giant had behind its acquisition of the network -it isn’t yet clear how it affects tenplay.

The announcements are expects at its annual Upfronts on October 31.

  1. The ELEVEN logo is too big, the 11 watermark appears bottom right hand side of screen & should be smaller size. The TEN logo is fine.
    If CBS do change ONE & 11 hope the new names are catchy.

  2. It looks like those heavy rumours are backed up by the .com.au domain names for 10peach, tenpeach, 10boss and tenboss all being reserved by 10’s IT team.

    As other have stated, the names seem awful. Peach is cringey, and if aimed at women will be seen as patronising. Boss is so similar to Mate it dilutes whatever cut-through they may have been hoping for, while also seeming relatively gendered. The inevitable hot takes on the names will annoy everyone.

    Unless the hype will instead be about them using emoji? That may explain the names seeming odd?

    So visually it will be “10”. Then 10 Peach will be “1(peach)” or “1🍑”. And 10 Boss will be “(boss)0” – either “🕴️0” or “🕺🏾0”. The dancing man looks better when actually typed due to the kerning, but is less of a 1 shape and changes a fair bit depending on which emoji set you’re using. Surely they wouldn’t use the…

  3. My TV Remote doesn’t have a button marked 7Mate or 9Gem, I select the channel from the EPG. Improve the programs on the EPG and you’ll get my click.
    It might be tempting to add “CBS” to the watermark but nobody cares and it’s a source of annoyance to many viewers. Annoy some more…why not!
    After much deliberation and market research it was decided to paint all Sydney trains blue. Commuters still complained about the service and looked for alternatives.
