“The Curated Content Carousel is the perfect pairing to our successful Premium Pause ad product, with both products offering advertisers an innovative, impactful and non-intrusive way to engage with audiences with key brand messages on 10 Play.”
Network 10’s digital sales director Sophie Hicks Lloyd said: “The appetite for new branded opportunities that guarantee premium placement and ensure a lasting impact is strong in the market.

“With 10 Play having its biggest year ever once again, it is time to pounce for prime position on 10 Play.”
