10 play TV shows
Need a new show to binge-watch or catch up on? Here's the full list of shows on 10 play.
At the same time, the platform's catch-up service is solid. Most of the shows that air on Network 10 make it into the catch-up library, with the latest episodes available to stream soon after they finish broadcasting on TV. Individual episodes will typically remain available for 14 to 28 days, after which they'll be removed from the catch-up catalogue.
Unfortunately, some shows won't make it to 10 play at all due to licensing restrictions. It's also worth mentioning that 10 play does not have international streaming rights for its shows, so the service is only accessible within Australia. Trying to stream 10 play from overseas will result in an error message.
What devices are compatible with 10 play?
10 play supports a large number of devices through both the 10 play website and device-specific apps.
To stream through the 10 play website, you'll need a Windows PC, Mac or Linux computer with one of the following compatible web browsers: Firefox version 63 and up, Chrome version 74 and up, Safari version 12 and up, Edge version 16 and up.
If you're looking to take your favourite Network 10 shows with you, the 10 play mobile app has got you covered. For Apple users, the iOS 10 play app requires iPhone and iPad devices running iOS 11.0 or later. Android users will have to check the store page for the Android 10 play app, compatible with devices running Android 9 or later. Windows users with an on-the-go lifestyle needn't feel left out either. The 10 play app is available for Windows 10 desktops and tablets.
For the big-screen catch-up experience, you can watch 10 play on your TV via a number of streaming devices. Apple TV, Telstra TV and Fetch TV devices all have their own version of the 10 play app available through their respective app marketplaces. Select Samsung TVs, Android TVs and FreeView Plus certified TVs also support 10 play through a dedicated app.
One thing you'll want to be aware of when watching 10 play on your TV, is that due to licensing restrictions, the catch-up catalogue on streaming devices is smaller than the one available through the 10 play website and the mobile app.

10 play app review round-up
Average rating (as of June 2020): 1.7 out of 5.0
What are users saying?
"Just tried watching Survivor. Froze every time the ads played on the third ad."
"While I can sometimes actually get through a whole episode now, if I'm lucky, it's certainly a trial on my limited patience."
"Judging by the comments and low rating, I must be one of the lucky ones, as the app has been flawless for me."
Average rating (as of June 2020): 2.1 out of 5.0
What are users saying?
"I downloaded the app to watch Masterchef via Chromecast. There are so many bugs with this function."
"The streaming side works fine, quality on a device good. But my gripe is the way the ads are managed."
