Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

This is now getting confusing. 🤣 I thought all the channels would drop the CBS brand, given Paramount have sold their share in the partnership to AMC. Guess this now means Paramount can fully focus its efforts on Paramount+.

That's a Freeview error, I think. The channel's new name is just 'Reality'.

Or the breakup of the CBS/AMC joint venture is resulting in CBS keeping 1 channel, hence it keeping the branding and Reality Xtra (formerly CBS Drama) not. The latter me be remaining with AMC.

Just a thought, I've not read anything.

I think there's a little bit of people of reading speculation on forums and repeating it as fact going on here. AMC aren't good at issuing press releases until after the event, so that's not going to help.

There's lots of people doing that unfortunately, on other forums too. Read it often enough, or with enough conviction, and they think it's true. I've not seen anything official that's clear, so until I do I'm taking it all with a pinch of salt.

A correction - I was thinking of Reality Extra.

It appears that CBS Reality retains its name.

Sorry about that - just realised my error.

Interestingly In The Nordics where Paramount+ exists for now until it becomes Sky Showtime , Paramount recently agreed a content licensing deal with Viaplay

FBI International was also previously sold TV2 in Norway so it isn't mentioned.
