    Nice that Ten are catering for the kids but they need to cater for their adult audience and fix the news on Tenplay. Geoblocking has made the service redundant. ‘Anywhere, anytime’ couldn’t be any further from the truth if you’re outside of NSW/Vic.

    Hopefully Mulligrubs is added to creep out the next gen of pre-schoolers

    Hi-5 House is also shown on Nick Jr. Nice to see it coming to Tenplay for those who don’t have NickJr in their pay tv package.
