How do I watch a video on TENplay?

If you can’t find your show or episode on the homepage, check out our Browse Shows page or simply type the name of your show into the search box located in the top right hand corner of the tenplay website.
Please note that due to rights restrictions, video on tenplay is not available for viewing from outside of Australia. In the case of the live news and live broadcasts, you are only be able to watch a live stream as you would in the the area you are currently in. For example, if you live in Brisbane but are staying in Perth, you would only have access to the Perth live feed because of the time difference.

I can't see any episodes to watch for my show
Unfortunately we do not always have rights to play all of Network Ten shows online. You will be able to tell if we have rights to your show if you visit a show page and can select the 'Episodes' button. Here you should see a selection of episodes to watch.
Often when we do have rights to a certain show there is a time limit allocated for how long we are able to keep it on playback. Commonly this is for 14 or 28 days from the time a show airs.
Are closed captions available on tenplay video?
Closed captions are not currently a feature on the tenplay site.
How do I live stream shows?
We Live Stream several of our shows each day including the Studio 10, The Project, TEN Eyewitness News and many sporting events like the Formula 1 and Moto GP. Go to the Watch LIVE page to see a full live streaming schedule and to stream your favourite shows. Live streaming is only possible at the time that the live show is broadcast.
The live stream cannot be viewed outside of those times and will only be available for the area in which you are located, just like you are watching the broadcast on TV. Unfortunately at this time, you cannot watch another state's broadcast if you are not physically in the area.
Live streaming can be accessed at the Watch LIVE page or via the tenplay app (Open the tenplay app. The second item on the homescreen will be the available Live Stream. Tap through to the video.)
There are some common issues with viewing videos on the tenplay site.
Keep in mind that the many of our videos are only online for 30 days after they have first been broadcast on TEN, ONE or ELEVEN. We think the best way to stay up-to-date with what’s coming and going on tenplay is to add video to your personal playlist or “Track” your favourite shows. That way, when video is going to expire, we’ll send you an email or a push notification (if have the tenplay app) to let you know that it’s your last chance to watch.
It’s also worth noting that we do not have the rights to play the full selection of our shows on IPTV and Xbox, so it's best to use a web browser on your PC, tablet or phone, or download the app to see the full list of our shows.

Due to restrictions within our rights agreement we are required to geo-block our live streaming content. This means that people outside of Australia will not be able to view the stream, and the stream within Australia is dependent on your states broadcast of the content. Our video service relies on your IP address listing a location. Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) may have not listed the location as part of your IP address.
To see if this could be an issue for you, please:
If there is no state listed in the results, we may be unable to serve you video. Resolving this will greatly depend on your own internet configuration. If you have a dynamic IP connection, you may be able to fix this by turning your router off and on again. Alternatively you can contact your internet service provider and mention that you are having trouble viewing videos on our site because the IP address does not have a state listed.
