13th Street is an Australian television channel specialising in action and suspense programs. The channel is owned by NBC Universal and was launched on 15 November 2009 as part of Foxtel's Next Generation launch.

13th Street in Australia is owned by the same company that operates 13th Street in other countries. It is the first 13th Street in the world to use the brand new logo that was launched by Universal Networks International in October 2009 at MIPCOM [2]

On 3 November 2014, 13th Street launched a HD simulcast on Foxtel. In addition, it moved from channel 113 to channel 118 and 13th Street + 2 moved from channel 163 to channel 160.[3]


Programming on 13th Street is a mix of Australian, British, American and Canadian murder mysteries and crime dramas. The channel features television series, mini-series and movies. Some of its programming was moved from sister channel Universal Channel when 13th Street launched (largely murder mystery style programs), however a larger range of premieres launched on 13th Street .[4]
