In 1990, North Queensland Television was rebranded to Queensland Television, with the QTV abbreviation being used in preparation for statewide aggregation. This logo was used for its intended affiliation with the Nine Network until WIN Television bought RTQ-7 Rockhampton which caused QTV to align with Network Ten prior to aggregation.

On 31 December 1990, TNQ's signal expanded into Darling Downs/Toowoomba on UHF-41, Mackay and Wide Bay/Maryborough on UHF-33, Rockhampton on UHF-34, and Warwick/Southern Downs on UHF-39.

On the same day, FNQ's callsign was changed to TNQ.

Ten Queensland



In 1993, Telecasters North Queensland (later Telecasters Australia) joined the consortium of Network Ten. This led to a name change from QTV to Ten Queensland and a switch to generic Ten branding.





In 2001, Telecasters was purchased by Southern Cross, this led to Ten Local News in North Queensland being axed and replaced with the standard 6pm program. The following year, the station was rebranded to Southern Cross Ten.
